An eight-decade old institution working towards fully integrating blind and visually impaired students with the outside environment as independent members of modern society, For over eighty years, Poona Blind School has been at the forefront of upgrading the lives of visually impaired students through holistic education. Be it educating students or training teachers, the school has always been at the forefront of empowering others.
Our story dates back to 1934, when Late Dr. S.R. Machave, a practising eye specialist was struck with a noble thought of working to uplift the lives of visually impaired students. He could see the hardships they went through in their daily routine. He and his dedicated team of visionaries got on a mission and since have transformed thousands of lives. Poona Blind School has been a pioneer institution ever since.
