Schools for the Blind

Around 1.0% of Pakistan's total population is estimated to be blind. So there are around 1.9 million Pakistanis suffering from blindness (2012).

Education has never been our priority. We thus fail to educate the majority of our people - especially the underprivileged segments of the society. And what about the millions of the unfortunate souls with special education needs - the blind, deaf, mentally handicapped? How many special education institutions do we have? And how many of them are functional or worth mentioning? I don't know. But this is a humble effort in this direction. We need to do the basic accounting and then see what we can do about it.

You can help this cause by submitting an entry for the institution that has come to your knowledge and help build this list. Thank you in advance.
