India is estimated to have at least 200,000 to 300,000 children with severe visual impairment.
Most of these children struggle through for the rest of their life-blinded not just by life and circumstance, but poor medical conditions and poverty.
We believe that children who are blind should have all means to realize their full potential and lead a life of dignity.

Your support allows us to create a direct, meaningful impact.
We are working to improve in the communities we serve.
From building a school to simply holding a hand, we believe that the children we support are never alone.
We are raising awareness for the cause of the visually impaired with our flagship Belaku Academy, a fully residential school for children in Banglore.
Most of the children are from remote villages who have not had access to proper medical facilities.
We focus on self-sustenance. We work on empowerment.
By providing educational support, we enable children with visual impairment to contribute to their lives and support their families eventually.
We have many dreams, but let’s tell you about one of our favorite dreams. We run the Belaku Academy in Bangalore, India. Belaku, in the local language, means light, and that’s what we would like to believe we are spreading.
The Academy is a residential school for both boys and girls, who struggle with various levels of visual impairment. Currently, it houses about 35 children.
Our dreams include expanding this school to support many more children.
We are creating a road to hope and possibility. We are providing our children with all the academic and other essential support they need to succeed. We have watched with pride as they become self -determined and invested in their education.We approach this work with a fierce determination to succeed.
