The vision of the organisation is to make the differently-abled fully employable, bringing them into the mainstream and helping them lead a life of dignity and economic independence.
Snehadeep Trust for the differently abled was established in 1999 by three highly motivated graduates, all visually impaired, who had a strong desire to help people with disabilities experience the life opportunities for which they had to fight so hard to obtain.
Paul Muddha, visually challenged, post an MBA and MA in Economics, is currently employed as a manager in Canara bank and has also taken the responsibility of running Snehadeep Trust. He is the recipient of the National Award for people with disabilities from the then President of India - Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam in 2004.
Snehadeep runs a free residential Computer Training course designed specifically for differently abled individuals. One of the most prevalent hurdles to education for the visually impaired is the availability of Braille textbooks. Snehadeep aims to provide free Braille textbooks to visually challenged students, thereby encouraging their continued education.
