I believe that the only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision. Since 2015, we have achieved numerous milestones: transcription of the Holy Quran and Qaida into Braille, first Urdu Braille magazine for kids, and conversion of the Sindh Textbook Board books into Braille etc. We are moving forward everyday one step at a time with the vision to work on Braille literacy, sensitizing the society about the challenges faced by visually impaired people and above all, turning disability into capability
I am forever indebted to my parents, siblings, and teachers for showing me how to stand my ground through the struggles of my accademic and professional life. Therefore, I strongly advocate that understanding is the first step towards acceptance. And only with acceptance can there be recovery. Ignoring people with visual challenges, sympathizing with them or looking down upon them can be catastrophizing for their future. Active listening and embedding resilience is the only way to empower them.
The loss of sight does not impair the qualities of mind and heart.
Every child deserves to learn – as a community, it is imperative that we train and educate ourselves to help our visually challenged children to be the best and highest versions of what they were created to be. I affirm that accommodating their individual differences and special needs is mandatory for holistic development.
