This festive season, Silver Linings offers you an opportunity to gift ‘Empowerment’ and ‘Dignity’ to blind girls and women!
We invite you to volunteer, provide infrastructure or donate cash and partner with Silver Linings to continue to help us run our ‘Project Dignity’
Project Dignity is currently providing visually impaired girls with training in various essential life skills that have been left out of their lives due to not being able to see with their eyes.
Some of these trainings are: mainstreaming skills, sexuality and personality development skills, communication and cooking skills along with helping them discover all that they may have missed due to their lack of eyesight. Remember 80% of all information absorbed by humans, is via the window of eyes, so those women may have missed out on a a lot.
As you may be aware, blind females in India are triply disadvantaged. They have to live with blindness, suffer all disadvantages faced by nondisabled women, and as a result, are often forced to live in complete poverty. A deep sense of shame and guilt, negative social pressures and attitudes, insecurity, neglect, rampant sexual abuse, humiliation, insignificance, denial and total suffocation are a few of their horrendous challenges. And on top of the above, not many people or organisations wish to take on the responsibility of working for visually impaired females as it is too difficult and challenging, they sadly claim.
Silver Linings is dedicatedly working to positively change all the above for visually impaired females. And we need your help!
About Silver Linings
Silver Linings is a not for profit organisation, working towards empowering and uplifting the status of blind women, in particular, as well as of those with other disabilities. It’s Founder and CEO, Ms. Preeti Monga has been blind since childhood and has dedicated her life towards helping people with disabilities, to move away from the recipient approach and embrace the contributors mindset, targeting a complete paradigm shift in the way society and disabled people themselves perceive physical and sensory disabilities. Silver Linings strives to instigate this change by simultaneously influencing and motivating, both the disabled and non disabled population!
Over the last 3 decades, Preet Monga has managed to create a reasonable impact in the disabled and non disabled community, with her relentless single-handed efforts. And now she is in the
process of expanding the impact and increasing the reach so as to make a tangible contribution towards the empowerment of blind women and girls.
This festive season, Silver Linings is reaching out to you and your esteemed organisation to assist and support in making a substantial, affirmative and a meaningful difference in the lives of blind females. So, together we can help them to help themselves to become productive citizens.
We will be deeply grateful if you, and or your organisation can partner and support Silver Linings in its efforts to make life worth living for blind females. All contributions to Silver Linings are exempted from income tax under 80 G of the income tax act.
