TNBFA’s contribution to Relief Work
TNBFA plays a significant role as a relief worker for visually impaired boys and girls. Involving these challenged youth in sports gives them a scope to lead a life where there are opportunities and hope and teaches them that their impairment does not necessarily mean despair and hopelessness.
• Their involvement in sport builds their self-confidence and instils in them a positive attitude of achievement and fulfilment.
• This goes a long way to build a holistic society where such visually impaired people can equally participate in full fervour.
• Had it not been this significant segment of the society would have dragged its wellness quotient way below the comfort zone.
