Reaching out to the visually-impaired students, RC Thane West, RID 3142, donated a laptop with a non-visual desktop access (NVDA), a software that converts texts into voice, to Shri M K Chaudhary Memorial Centre, Dombivli, which is being run by Snehankit Helpline, an NGO.
Two Bluetooth headphones, along with keypads, that can be connected to a smartphone were also donated to the centre. This facility will benefit more than 40 visually-impaired students in their studies.
The project was funded by the returns from an Endowment Fund created by past president Suchit Gadakari and the handover event was attended by club president Shrirang Deshpande, project director Sadhana Vaze and other members. Snehankit Helpline chairperson Parimala Bhat was also present.
