Scholarship for the children of differently abled (blind)

Dhyana Jyothi Trust, a Carmelite NGO, distributed scholarships to the children of differently abled parents under the banner 'Carmel Vision for Future'. Fifteen children of visually impaired parents were given scholarships in Bengaluru on Thursday May 31.

Addressing the audience Fr Stifan Perera OCD, the director of the Trust and Dhanavana Publications Bengaluru said, “Education to the children especially to the parents of blind is a Carmelite venture. Though the parents are blind, they have a great desire to brighten the lives of their children. Carmelite priests have taken up this unique initiative with the help of the donors and benefactors.”

Nelly Pichardo, the coordinator of ‘Carmel 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.”

Some of the parents are totally blind while some are partially blind. While it is difficult to earn their daily bread itself, they find it very hard to educate their children.

Dhyna Jyothi Trust, is a charitable trust by the Carmelite priests. Alongside taking up charitable works, the Trusts takes up printing religious and social literature.
