Bhabani Shankar Padhy, secretary of the organisation and himself blind said the programme was organised so that its inmates do not feel disabled. OSCB has been holding such celebrations for the visually impaired girls for the past four years.
It was established by a group of blind people to cater to those suffering from the same predicament keeping in mind their need for school and college educations and rehabilitation through vocational training. Around 100 blind girls from across the state stay in the center, which is run with donations from the people.
