World Braille Day

By Javed Ahmad Tak

Louis Braille contributed for the Education of persons with Blindness or visual disabilities. Although the persons with blindness are still lagging behind in Education and have to dissociate themselves from their families in order to seek Education from other states. Still we can do a lot for safeguarding rights of visual disablities.

We need

To have strong policy in J&K from the government in order to empower the Persons with blindness and other disabilities.

To enhance the capacities and capabilities by fulfilling the educational needs of visual disable students including Braille and technology aids

Implementation of legislations and policies in letter and spirit like Rights of Persons with disabilities Act 2016.

Inclusion and accommodation of visual disable persons in committees and advisory boards at state and central level.

Serving reservation in education and employment areas in favour of persons with visual disabilities

Provision of sufficient social security amount in favour of persons facing visual disabilities so that they could manage life without facing hardships.

Creating enabling environment and maximizing the Accessibility in buildings, banking units, hospitals court buildings, educational institutions and hospitals.

Provision of vocational trainings and create safe vocational trainings so that persons with visual disabilities could earn a dignified livelihood and live a life with decency.

To introduce auditory signals and talking warning signals at public places so that persons with visual disabilities can reach out everywhere independently

Serving the reservation in employment through all recruiting agencies from district level to JKSSB & Public services commission

Let us hold the hands with persons facing blindness and make them productive part of society rather than making them beggars.
