A Pioneer Institution For The Blind

Section Title Separator

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.

Separate School For Girls And Boys

Poona Blind School and Home for the Blind was set up with the noble intention of helping the visually impaired to see the future bright and clear. Since then, the institution has grown from strength to strength and has achieved a respectable name in the field of education.

Forty years after inception, the number of students enquiring for admissions had grown manifold. Hence, a separate school for visually impaired girls started functioning. A vocational training centre was established to make them self-dependent. With two well-equipped campuses, a top-notch curriculum and a holistic development programme, both the boy and girl students now feel secure and are confident to compete with the mainstream.
