CADRE-India is conducting eye camps in the Kanyakumari District, to give awareness on eye diseases and to make regular vision checkups to the community. The NGO also gives counseling to cataract affected people and their families and accompany them during their cataract operation processes. CADRE-India believes that through prevention most of the cases of blindness in adults can be avoided.
CADRE-India is also identifying visually impaired people and teaching them mobility and working skills. Through this, we are successfully avoiding social and economic exclusion and building up self-confidence. When our beneficiaries learn mobility, they are more confident to help their families in the household activities and also to leave the house and meet other members of their communities. The main working skills taught are palm leaf handicrafts and the results of their production are being commercialized through the organization. CADRE-India also helps visually impaired people to open their own business.
With the help of our charity box we are also able to provided financial help to those visually impaired beneficiaries, who are in situations of extreme need.
