Youth4Jobs coaching classes for the visual impaired:
India has the largest number of visual impaired and most of them live in unreached villages. Since there is a reservation for government jobs for the disabled, the youth keep attempting these jobs but fail several times . The reasons are lack of English, computer skills etc. Youth4Jobs has begun coaching classes for the visual impaired to improve their chances of getting into a job they aspire for and live independently in the city.
The specially qualified trainers are visually impaired themselves, thus understanding well the special needs of the trainees.
