Welcome to Tapasya Charitable Trust (TCT)

Globally there are 314 million people are suffering with total / partial loss of vision. Out of these 45 million people are blind and 269 million having partial sight. Where as 90 percent of people with vision deformities are from low income countries. More so, every year less then a percent are added to the population which means around 2 million are included. Having been said that, the scenario of India is equally pathetic; and it is home for largest blind population in the world which is around 12 million. Over and above the prevalence rate of blindness among rural community is high and sadly women are more affected then men. In general, men have access to medical facilities twice that of women but still due to shortage of proper medical and rehabilitation services a large number of blind individuals are forced to live on the edge of survival.

Season’s Greetings and a Happy New Year from Tapasya Charitable Trust
