Sarita's story

19-year-old Sarita is visually impaired and belongs to Hoshangabad district of Madhya Pradesh. In 2014, Sarita was given Braille and ICT Based training under Sightsavers’ Inclusive Education Programme. She later participated in a Self- Defence Instructor Training organised by Sightsavers which would eventually transform her life.

In 2018, Sarita participated at the 6th National Blind and Deaf Judo Championship and she returned with the Bronze Medal. A year later, she won Silver Medal at the 7th National Blind Judo Championship.

Playing for India was a dream for Sarita since she started to learn Judo. This dream turned into reality when Sarita made everyone proud by winning Bronze Medal at the 2019 Commonwealth Judo Championship for Visually Impaired in Walsall West Midlands, England.
