Like many students with visual impairments, Vidhya was discouraged from taking the subjects she loved, and was even rejected from several schools due to her disability. But today, she’s helping students across six states hope for a better future.
Facing much difficulties in her schooling and studies, Vidhya enrolled for her post-graduation in Digital Society Programming at IIIT-Bangalore, and passed out in 2017 with a gold medal.
Vidhya launched Vision Empower, which offers an accessible learning management platform to promote experiential learning of STEM subjects, computational thinking, and digital literacy, and also includes early childhood programmes.
The technology arm of Vision Empower — Vembi Technologies — has developed a learning management system named ‘Subodha’, where all study material is made accessible to teachers and children with visual impairments. Vidhya adds, “We have also designed an affordable braille book reader for children called ‘Hexus-Antara’.
