Chaithanya is a boy of class five, Right from the age of two, he is very much fond of super heroes.
He admired them a lot. He also wanted to become a superhero in his life. This thought kept on disturbing his mind.
One day, he shared this thought with his father. He asked his father regarding his super hero. To answer this little mind’s question, his father took him to a graveyard and showed a tomb. Then after, Chaithanya Understood the fact. And he understood that we don’t need special powers to be superheroes. Anyone who donates his eyes to bring light to someone’s life is a super hero in the real sense.
The idea behind taking this story line is: To create awareness of donating the eyes from a very root level of our society i.e. children.
5 Million people are waiting for Eye Donation.
5 Million people, whose live could be enlightened only by the cornea through eye donation. However, it is not very hard to get cornea through eye donation, the only thing required is to make efforts to develop awareness among people in this direction.
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.
