 Story of Thangapandi
T.Thangapandi was born in a small village near Virdhunagar. He was visually challenged by birth. He is studying Bachelor of English in Madurai Melur College. Though there is hostel facilities in the college itself, due to the regulations and other factors he cannot stay there. Besides, the high cost of boarding and lodging can never be borne by him. A Sound Mind in a Sound Body is the basic principle for all. He was searching for a good place to stay and access his college education. So, he was admitted in our Hostel and provided with a comfortable stay and food. Another main aspect of the hostel facilities is they are provided with Part-time readers in the evenings helping them to study their lessons, record writing and recording lessons. Thangapandi was much happier to be at our hostel. The assistance by readers helped him a lot to study his lessons. He felt it as a better place to be there than his home and his thought was to study and earn to make his parents live in a good condition.
 
 Educating a deserving child.
Anbarasan was born in Thotipatti with partial vision loss from birth. His father Muthuraman earnings were not sufficient for education. They came to know that his vision loss couldn’t be cured. They were also not aware of the special schools too. Then he came to know about IAB and given counseling to join schooling but they were not capable to spend for his education. Anbarasan’s parents were given counseling to accept his blindness and educate him in a proper special school so that he will be groomed well. The cost for education, his study materials, his stay, food and all amenities were provided to him so that he can continue his education He and his parents were made to come out of the depression to educate him for his excellent future. All the study materials along with comfortable stay and hygienic food were provided. Since, education is the essential and first step for life he felt happy.
 
 Providing a laptop to assist in higher education.
Balamurugan aged 19, a visually impaired boy finds difficult to cope up with the lessons taught in his college. He is doing his Bachelor in Tamil Literature. In case of college, there are no prescribed textbooks or reference material in neither Braille nor audio. Notes given in the class should be noted down. So he found it difficult to continue his study without help from others. His interest and talents was identified and we approached a philanthropist who financed to get him a Netbook with which he can explore more information and learn well. With the help of the Netbook, like his sighted counterparts he can record notes in class itself and maintains the same for future reference. He became independent with the netbook. The notes taken can be preserved properly and he can use the same for examinations. Besides he can also browse the net for reference material the first step for becoming self reliant.
