The Belgaum District Association for the Blind

We Proudly & with immense pleasure seek to introduce our organization " The Belgaum District Association for the Blind", a pioneer institution rendering yeoman services in the field of education, rehabilitation & the all round development of the blind children. This unique & benevolent Association was founded on 27th April 1972 under the able stewardship of renowned social worker & an eminent physician of Belgaum Late Dr. N.R. Kulkarni.

The Association, in pursuance of its noble cause started the " Maheshwari School for the Blind" on the Gandhi Jayanti Day that is 2nd October 1978, which today stands as an unparallel institution for the blind children in the whole state of Karnataka. The school with its vast campus provides hostel, boarding, playground facilities apart from quality education, regular medical checkup, uniforms & entertainment for all its inmates. The 128 students from 1st to 10th standard enjoy all the facilities totally free of cost in a one large family like ambience. The salubrious & congenial atmosphere of the campus coupled with the friendly & affectionate attitude of the trained teachers is conductive for the growth of both physical & mental faculties of the children. Skilled, qualified & dedicated teachers impart education through Braille script & vocal training. To ensure all round development of the blind children & to boost their latent talents. They are taught music & are encouraged to participate in various curricular & extra curricular activities. We are very proud to observe that the group song team of blind children has won many prizes both at District level & State level competitions & have exhibited unusual skills in vocal & instrumental classical music. To make the children steadfast & independent in current times they are given Computer education by adopting specialized procedures including online training.
