1. Sensitization Program

Thus, (BPS) blind and partially sighted people can become more aware of their basic rights and available social protections. Ideally, discrimination against BPS People would be reduced. Different districts are selected considering the prevalence of the BPS people in the concerned area. Rural blind and partially sighted peoples who are deprived of personal development education and employment are the major targets of this program.
