"A journey of a thousand miles, begins with a single step."
That single step was first taken in the year 1987 by the Founder and Managing Trustee of Sakthi Thiranalayam. A seed was sown in her heart while she was serving at the Little Flower Convent, Chennai that works for children with visual impairments. Her volunteering experience there set the course for what followed - establishing a centre dedicated to empowering blind women. Soon the seed became a tree and today, Sakthi Thiranalayam has empowered many women through employment. She dreams of a future where all persons with disabilities are provided with equal opportunities in all aspects of life. She strives to empower many more blind women and make them independent.
"I have been here since the time of establishment and will continue working here as long as I am able to. I like being a part of this organisation because I am able to make my own living without depending on anyone."Mani
"It has only been 8 months since I joined Sakthi Thiranalyam and I am already very happy here. I have been trained by the staff and seniors here and I have learnt a lot of things."Malliga
"This year, I complete 18 years working in Sakthi Thiranalayam. Besides being financially independent, I am also content with the affection that I receive from all the people here."Mariammal
