Devilal's story

June 2014
Low vision

Devilal was identified by a Sightsavers NGO partner for low vision, and was included in the inclusive education project.

The project helped Devilal with skills on mobility and sensory techniques. He was later enrolled in a nearby school. He learns Braille and is getting used to the Taylor Frame for mathematical calculations.

Devilal aspires to become a district magistrate when he grows up.

Devilal is wholeheartedly supported by his school teacher and peers. He actively participates in school activities besides sports and cultural events. Low vision is now no longer a challenge for him.
