The number of visually impaired people in Chitrakoot district is very high. And a majority of these people do not receive any help or assistance in terms of education or livelihood. Drishti was therefore started for supporting visually impaired people for education and advocacy.
Shankar Lal Gupta is the head and founder of the organisation. He himself is a visually impaired person, and has very good experience in the social sector. He has inspired many with his determination and perseverance in starting and running an organisation.
