Hyderabad, September 18, 2023: The Federation of Telangana Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FTCCI) Hyderabad, in collaboration with the LV Prasad Eye Institute’s Rehabilitation Centre, organised a unique program at its premises in Red Hills on Saturday.

16 Visually impaired, who are students at LV Prasad Eye Institute’s Rehabilitation Centre visited FTCCI to explore skill development as well as opportunities for visually challenged.

Meela Jayadev, President FTCCI, and Mr. Suresh Kumar Singhal, Senior Vice President FTCCI interacted with them. Employers are now open to give a job to the people with visual disabilities as they have acquired skill sets like none other, said Meela Jayadev. There are numerous job roles that are offered to the visually impaired by both the government and the private sector, he added

Physical limitations are not barriers to achieve your dreams.  There are many who proved they are no way less than others. Eric, a visually challenged, climbed Mount Everest.  There are no limitations, he said.

During the interaction, the students shared their aspirations, challenges, and success stories. The exchange of experiences created a supportive and inclusive environment, fostering a sense of belonging and camaraderie among the participants.

FTCCI, in its commitment to promoting inclusivity and empowerment, further ensured that the program catered to the specific needs of the visually impaired students.
