What about my child's future?
Many parents worry about their child's future, even after he begins to learn new skills and go to school. They wonder, "What will happen when he grows up? How will he manage when we are gone?" Sometimes it helps parents to learn about others who, even though they cannot see, have grown up to lead full and satisfying lives - to have families of their own, to earn a living, and to become respected members of their communities. Blind people can achieve this when:
- People understand that blind children, like all children, can learn.
- Their families and communities help them succeed.
This publication titled 'Helping Children Who Are Blind' is brought out to help children with blindness and their parents to overcome the situation. It's a tool book fully illustrative stretching helping hand to the blind and nearly blind children for easy-going life on the one hand and promoting a community eye care on the other. Sight Savers International, Mumbai, a renowned organisation active worldwide to promote eye care has come forward to help in making this book available in Hindi, Bengali and Oriya languages.
