Sakthi Thiranalayam

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do much"
- Helen Keller

Education and employment opportunities are not accessible for many women with disabilities, especially women with blindness. Many of them have difficulties in earning a livelihood for themselves. To empower such women, Sakthi Thiranalayam was established in the year 1987 with the guidance of Rev.Sister Stella, Little Flower Convent, Chennai and Dr. M.N.G.Mani, Sri Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya, Coimbatore.

Initially started as a skill development centre where blind women were trained in orientation and mobility, cooking, stitching, home management, shopping and hand work, it ventured into providing job opportunities for them. Products such as envelopes, incense sticks, cleaning liquids, disinfectants, files and wire baskets are being made by them. The management markets these products and provides a source of income for them. Right from the time of inception until now, xx blind women have benefited out of these opportunities provided to them. Currently, there are 15 women working here. Lunch and medical aid are also provided. The retired women are given a small sum as welfare amount every month.
