About KVF :
In India, opportunities and accessibility for the visually challenged needs a lot of improvement. This reality and a deep desire among RCMCians to do their bit for a section of the visually challenged society, who was looking for support in whatever form to enable them to step up and take their rightful place in this world, was the seed that led to the launch of “Karna Vidya”.
