BOARD OF TRUSTEES
The Emolyment Department plays a vital role in helping visually challenged job-seekers find suitable employment, by working closely with the candidates and liaising with companies – both in public and private sector – to give the blind the opportunity to get into the work force.In cases where blind persons are placed in the Government,public sector, determined efforts are made to optimally utilize the 4% reservation for the disabled provided under the RPwD Act (2016) secure jobs for the blind in the Government and public sector; and convince prospective employers in the private sector to employ the blind. NAB has immensely contributed to the process of identifying jobs in the open market, which could be managed by the blind.h
What can u do?
A "THROWBACK" FROM WHERE OUR JOURNEY STARTED
pening up of new vistas of opportunities for the neglected
segments of Our blind population residing in rural areas of U.P
is our major concern. On the other hand, facilitating access to
information and harnessing appropriate technologies for
improving the quality of life of our blind friends is a matter of
faith with us. Seeking out new and challenging work-
opportunities commensurate with the interests and capabilities
of our blind youngsters is yet another challenging task before
us. We have to make our programs and services consistent
with the daunting demands and realities of the twenty-first
century. That is the volume and magnitude of work for which
we strive to design and develop our future strategies and
The various concessions and facilities available to the
visually challenged today are a result of advocacy activities
initiated by NAB.
NAB liaises with Government and private organizations in
respect of issues affecting the lives and dignity of people
with visual impairment; promotes policy changes; and
provides cost-free legal assistance to visually challenged
individuals, through a Legal Aid Centre, to solve their
personal and professional problems.
