"The only think worse than being blind is having sight but no vision" - Helen Keller.

If you can read this quote you belong to the privileged section of the society because you can see. Unfortunately there are close to 15 million in India who are not so blessed. There is so much that can be done to make the lives of the differently abled easier. A blind person for example needs just three things to help him live an independent life - Technology, Training and Employment.

"We rise by lifting others" - Robert Ingersoll.

We live in an unequal world but it does not have to stay unequal. Dignity comes from skills and equal contribution. You can do something to tilt the balance and help those who are less fortunate. It can be as simple as volunteering few hours in the month to donating everyday items like mattresses for students of our institute. Our goal is to provide training which will enable visually challenged to apply for higher studies and have a career. TTI is committed to providing skills that will transform their dreams into reality.
