Vision Rehabilitation Programme 1

The Vision Rehabilitation Programme aims to work towards the improvement of the quality of life of our visually handicapped clients through specialized self-help services that help them to raise self-esteem and to gain self-reliance to cope with integration into mainstream society.

This is done by helping them to develop their support system, foster links with the community, learn new skills and more importantly adopt positive attitudes towards whatever situation they find themselves in.
