Victoria Memorial School for the Blind

The Victoria Memorial School for the Blind is a charitable institution dedicated to the education and rehabilitation of the blind. Founded in 1902 and named after Queen Victoria, the school has been offering free education to children with visual impairment, looking after their various physical and psychological needs and nurturing them to become responsible and self-supporting citizens. Many of the students belong to disadvantaged families from rural areas.

The medium of education is Marathi, and students are taught various crafts and vocations, from pre-school to middle school levels.

After the seventh standard, students continue to enjoy hostel facilities, but are admitted into regular schools and given the opportunity to integrate with sighted children.

The management is constantly engaged in the task of updating and expanding facilities.

St. Jude India Childcare Centres

There is a huge social need to provide a safe and clean environment for children to recuperate following treatment for serious chronic diseases like cancer. Through generous charities, hospitals are able to provide therapy to needy children from distant parts of the country. However, such patients often have no place to stay where they can convalesce to ensure that the treatment is effective. St. Jude provides special childcare Centres that help children under eight-years suffering from cancer to recover in a clean environment, while also providing counselling for their immediate families during this traumatic experience.

Collectively, seven St. Jude Centres have now been set up which offer palliative care to a total of 79 family units.
