To ensure that the all disabled people of Dahod and Panchmahals districts have access to equal opportunities leading to improved quality of life and full participation in the society that respects their rights and dignity.
Three persons with visual impairment decided to work for the education, rehabilitation and all round welfare of all categories of disabled. They formed a group of seven people and started with a Trust named Blind Welfare Council. They decided to help the disabled at every stage of life so that they do not face the hardships that they faced for themselves.
Founder Yusufi Kapadia says , " I have suffered a lot during my studies and for getting job being visually challenged. Its my aim that each and every child or person with disability should get equal opportunity in all fields of life and his all rights shall be fulfilled. He should live a life at par with any other citizen of the country. Having a clear vision of ensuring that all the disabled people of Dahod and PMS and Mahisaagar have access to the right of equal opportunities and full participation the organisation is working in a team. Leadership by a person with visual impairment have made a great change in the working of the staff members."

 Bilwal's world is changing
Bilwal Sunny Mukeshbhai is a resident of Mirakhedi in Zalod district Dahod. He was visually impaired by birth. He was living like a vegetable in his house doing nothing. His parents did not know what to do with him. Can a blind child learn anything? was their question. In our Survey of the persons with disability we identified him and helped him in getting medical certificate. We then convinced the parents to admit him in a normal school called Vasti primary school in Grade 1. Our special teacher Mr Bharat Panchal started taking care for his education and special needs like braille language and arithmetic. Today Sunny is studying in Grade 8 of Rashtriya Uttar Buniyadi Vidhyalaya Mirakhedi. He moves around and comes from home and goes back all alone. He has good orientation and mobility and is successfully going ahead in his studies in Braille. He also takes part in almost all extracurricular activities of the school.Of course we do the training on regular basis during their study and at home also.
 Sounds and laughter
Khatedya Divyansh ,7 years of age is a child with Hearing Impairment and speech impairment who is a resident of Bhimfaliya, Jhabua (MP). He did nothing at home except for a few household activities and some play. His parents didn’t know how to go ahead with his education. Our teacher met the family and informed them of the new school at Blind welfare council Dahod which is about 50 kms from his residence. He convinced them to admit the child in Grade 1 in this new special school for the children with hearing and speech impairment. Our special teacher Tara ben who is trained to teach the children with hearing impaiment is taking care of his educational as well as daily living needs.After one month, he is now able to identify Gujarati alphabets, all domestic animals, and can make signs for the identification of numbers and animals and will complete Grade 1 successfully at the end of the year.

 A new beginning for Mariya
Mariya Kapadiya aged 32 years is a lady who suffers from visual impairment. She completed her school studies long back in the year 1990 and then tried for a job but could’nt get one in Dahod which is her home town. After that she did a short term course on telephone operating and kept on searching for a job. She used to do all the house work and help her family members. BWC was in touch with her and we informed her about the Computer operator course specially for people with visual impairment and loco motor disablities that had started in the year 2008. This course is recognised by Government of Gujarat ( Gujarat council for vocational training – GCVT) We enrolled her in this course in the same year for the first batch itself. With the help of the JAWS ( Job access with speech) software she was able to learn the computer operation easily, with the help of Braille she could learn theory and Practical with Jaws and CD she successfully completed this course with 81 % marks. For the next batch in the year 2009 she was appointed as Computer Instructor in the same training programme and is doing her job successfully. Being a person with visual impairment she can teach the students with visual impairment in a better way.
