A new course which aims to make them economically independent by training them in fields like information technology and communications has been introduced by an institute recognised by the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU). A unit of the Venu Charitable Society, the Venu Institute of Universal Education, was set up with the aim of capacity building for the visually impaired.
The 10-month diploma in New Economy Skills, as the course is called, aims at application of information technology and communications skills so that the visually challenged can be employed in call centres, corporate houses, audio-video related jobs and the likes. Among the course modules for the programme, besides information technology, are general knowledge and current affairs, soft skills, mathematics and logical reasoning.
