blind is a Carmelite venture started by Fr. Praveen Pinto.

brighten the lives of their children. Carmelite priests have
taken up this initiative for a year with the help of the
donors and benefactors.”
Nelly Pichardo, the coordinator of Vision for Future said,
“Parents are not only blind, they are also poor. Hence, they
cannot afford to educate their children. On the contrary,
children are highly talented and fare very well in their
studies. Hence, we feel it is our responsibility to give
them a helping hand.”
