Drishti Creative Contest (http://drishti.org.in)
Every year antardrishti under the name “Drishti”, organise creative contest to promote eye donation in four category (Short Films, Posters, Design, and Audio Jingles).
Antardrishti – a social development organisation is committed to the cause of blind people in our society. Towards this we had made a humble beginning in 2006. It is registered as a Public Charitable Trust under Indian Trust Act, 1882. In our country, after the so long time after Independence still people are suffering from blindness due to lack of proper information and treatment. In similar way the person who becomes blind or losses his eyesight is not able to connect himself with the main stream of society due to lack of proper information and encouragement. Antardrishti stand with #Eye Care, #Eye Donation and Empowerment of #Visually Impaired.
Need of the hour is to raise awareness level of the society towards eye care, eye donation and empowerment of blind people.
