Empowering Dreams: Scholarships for Abandoned Visually Impaired and Blind Girls

Welcome to Battle for Blindness, a platform dedicated to supporting and empowering abandoned visually impaired and blind girls on their journey towards education and independence. We understand the unique challenges faced by this community, and we are committed to making a positive impact through initiatives such as our scholarship program.

The Importance of Education for Visually Impaired and Blind Girls

Education is a powerful tool that opens doors to opportunities, personal growth, and a brighter future. For visually impaired and blind girls, access to quality education is crucial in overcoming barriers and achieving their full potential. At Battle for Blindness, we recognize the significance of education in fostering independence and breaking down societal stereotypes.

Our Scholarship Program

Our scholarship program aims to provide financial support to visually impaired and blind girls pursuing higher education. We believe that every individual deserves the chance to pursue their dreams, and financial constraints should not be a barrier. Through our scholarship, we hope to empower these young women to excel academically and build fulfilling careers.

Shaheed Major Satish Dahiya Scholarship for Abandoned Visually Impaired and Blind Girls

Introducing the Shaheed Major Satish Dahiya Scholarship for Abandoned Blind Girls, a tribute to the courageous spirit of an Indian Army Major dedicated to serving the nation. Major Satish Dahiya, who had envisioned supporting blind individuals in their education and rehabilitation post-retirement, unfortunately sacrificed his life in the line of duty.

While leading an operation in Jammu & Kashmir, Major Dahiya and his team encountered fierce opposition. Despite sustaining serious injuries, he ensured the neutralization of four terrorists before receiving medical assistance. This scholarship not only honors Major Dahiya’s commitment to supporting abandoned blind girls but also commemorates his bravery and indomitable fighting spirit. Dileep Kumar (brother of founder Ram Kumar) is a witness to his bravery as he was also posted with Major Dahiya.

This scholarship is a beacon of hope, aimed at empowering blind girls to realize their dreams of education, employment, and sustainable rehabilitation for an independent future. Each year, we provide INR 15,000 to a maximum of 15 deserving girls, extending the legacy of Major Dahiya and shaping a brighter tomorrow for those who receive it.

From Desperation to Determination: The Inspirational Journey of an Abandoned Blind Girl

A few years ago, Ram Kumar received a heart-wrenching call from a blind girl grappling with the harsh reality of her family’s indifference. Her parents, dishearteningly, insisted that she either fend for herself or leave home, declaring she had no place there.

Upon connecting with this girl, she poured her heart out, expressing the unbearable burden of her existence. “What should I do? I don’t feel like living; I am the burden of this world,” she cried. The reason became clear when our team inquired further—she lacked the means to even fill out a form or attend coaching classes for job preparation, leaving her unable to envision a path to independence. It was this poignant call that ignited the inception of our scholarship, aiming to be a source of hope for those who face abandonment, adversity, and financial constraints on their journey toward self-sufficiency.

This scholarship initiative was born out of a deep commitment to empower abandoned blind girls, providing them with a lifeline to pursue their aspirations and navigate life’s challenges when their families offer no emotional, financial, or physical support.
