  3. About Organisation


Its beinning was made by respected Shri Ballubhai Desai who was an active worke of Satya Sai Seva Samiti and who recognized the need of readers, audio cassettes, etc. felt by blind college students. It was a challenge and Shri Ballubhai accepted to meet the demand. He has been active in the field for last ten years or more . Shri Kantibhai who received education and benefitted from this charitable service has not joined this noble mission with zeal. He has taken over from Shri Ballubhai who has got 5000 cassettes made for the blind, but on acount of his old age was unable to conitnue to serve and mange the updkeep of the cassettes, which work would otherwise be done by some registered organization. So Shri Kantibhai offered his services for the same.
Shri Kantibhai himself is also one who has lost his eyesight. He came to Amdavad for studies from a village and has been devoted to serve the blind students. He has his own experience of the difficulties faced by blind young boys and girls (brothers-sisters) who come for studies. He felt inpsired and wanted to help others so that they could be spared from the troubles faced by himself. He had realized that educsation alone gave one self respect and honor and status in society as he had himself benefitted from studying in schools and colleges run by socieity as a result of which he determined to establish an organisation offering facilities and living accomodation to the blind students who come to study here as well as other employed blind people and that instution in our “NAVJYOT ANDHJAN MANDAL”

We have recently started the following activities


“Navjyot Andhajan Mandal” is a voluntary organisation helping students who are needy or economically backward. The blind students or others who come here for employment are allowed to stay in rented building in Paldi. These accommodate up to 100 blind individuals and give them 2 meals a day (Tiffin service is arranged in the morning for the blind who go for Work) In addition there is a library for the blind, this facility is enjoyed by nearly fifty blind students studying in colleges. Moreover we also keep in touch with schools to provide “writers” for the blind students at the time for appearing for the exams.
This organisation has no source of permanent income and therefore we have started a special activity of collecting pasti items of domestic use, left surplus like old clothes, old mobile sets, computers etc. We hope to be able to economically viable. We appeal to you for your kind cooperation in this regard. Normally every house hold sales its pasti every month, We appeal to you to give it to us and ask others to give, each month. It will help us meet our monthly expenses. If you inform us at the address given below or by telephone we will approach you in person and collect from you pasti, old mobiles etc. We can also visit your society on a certain date and arrange for the collection.
