IAB has been the pioneer in empowering the visually challenged towards self-reliance through various initiatives. The Institute in its 35 years has made remarkable progress, be it in the number of lives it has touched or numerous services that are being offered. Currently, in Tamil Nadu, out of the 30,000 x educated and vocationally trained visually challenged people, 20% are being educated, rehabilitated, and even employed by IAB. (Source – IAB website)
