Smart vision spectacles for the visually-challenged in Hubli

RC Hubli Vidyanagar, RID 3170, inspired by the Project Drishti of Rotary Club of Madras East (RCME), RID 3232, launched the project ‘The Eye Story’, under which the club donated Smart Vision Glasses (SVS) designed by Smart Health Global, a ­Bengaluru-based IT company, to 16 ­visually-impaired ­students. “RCME helped us get in touch with the manufacturers and guided us through the ­process. Each device costs ₹25,000. VRL Logistics, Hubli, is partnering with us as part of their CSR ­venture,” says club ­president, Mahima Mohit.

She hosted a zoom conference for the clubs in her district to interact with the CEO of Smart Health Global, Ramu Muthangi. “Many clubs want to take up this project and DG Gaurish Dhond has placed an enquiry for bulk ­supply,” she added.

Elated by the feedback, RCME club president M ­Srinivasa Rao says, “we are glad that our project has become a catalyst to change the lives of the ­visually-impaired. I got lot of enquiries after the project was published in Rotary News.”

    This is a great project and could be a boon to all the visually-challenged people across the country.
