Sightsavers stories

Vibha's story

11-year-old Vibha studies in a government school for economically weaker sections in Jehanabad, Bihar. Vibha is visually impaired since birth and is supported by Sightsavers under its Inclusive Education Programme. Vibha has been trained and provided with accessible devices which assist her in studies.

After signing the MoU with the Government of Bihar, Sightsavers is allocating all kinds of accessible devices required by children with visual impairment for educational, recreational and mobility purposes in the government schools of the state.

As far as first impressions go, Vibha comes across as shy and an introvert. But when faced with a mathematical challenge, her shyness quickly evaporates. While she might be just another 11-year-old going through the rigmaroles of middle school, her teachers feel that Vibha has mathematical aptitude way beyond her years.
