 Rajani
At the age of 11 Rajani was diagnosed for Steven Johnson Syndrome- a condition that leaves a permanent impact on a body organ, In her case she lost her eyesight. She found her way to Samarthanam where she learned working on the computers with a screen reading software. She learned MS Office, and the Internet with the help of screen reading software and supporting volunteers. Rajani Gopalakrishna is the first visually challenged women to have qualified as Charted Accountant. She says gratfully that incorrect execution of medical advancement took away my eyesight; and with the help of technology it gave me a new lease of life.
 
 Rajashri excels
Rajashri was studying in small village where there are no facilities for better education. While studying in secondary level there were improper resources in the school like -lack of teachers, poor infrastructure facility and poor encouragement for blind education in school system. Hence she was struggling a lot to finish her studies with poor quality of education. Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled did study on her educational life in village level. Team interacted with whole family members and observed the situation how they are struggling in every level of education. Samarthanam encouraged her for higher education and assured her to give support to attain the desire of becoming teacher. Soon Rajashri has achieved better educational growth in all level of her studies. So far she has good progress report in studies and co-curricular activities. Now she is stepping into the Post Graduation as she dreamt in child hood days. She expressed her confidence to become lecturer with support of Samarthanam Trust.
 
 The story of Renuka
Renuka, a visually impaired girl born in a poor family at Abdaravalli village in Haveri district of Karnataka. She lost her father in her early childhood days. We found her while she was doing her PUC. We counseled her and admitted in Samarthanam hostel. We supported her in all ways to grow personally and professionally. She successfully completed her graduation in humanities and is now pursuing her post graduation in women studies. I want work in an NGO after my post graduation and do something for women empowerment. She decided what she want to do in future.
