Best Practices in Awareness and Advocacy Programs for the Visually Impaired
Dr. Sam Taraporevala
A key factor impacting the effective inclusion of blind and low-vision persons into the social mainstream is the lack of awareness concerning the lives of the visually challenged, as also the presence of myths concerning them. The Xavier’s Resource Centre for the Visually Challenged (XRCVC) has recognized this need and has tackled this issue through awareness initiatives such as its flagship event Antarchakshu®—The Eye Within and an active engagement with policymakers through advocacy initiatives. This session will touch upon this dual approach in terms of its antecedents, approach, and case examples.
Dr. Pooja Desai is MHA, DOMS, MBBS.
