The Poona School and Home for the Blind Trust
The Poona School and Home for the Blind has been a pioneer institution in Pune. This eight decade old institution was started by Dr.S.R.Machave, a practicing eye specialist himself, working specifically for the cause of blinds. It had a humble beginning in 1934 in rented premises at Somwar Peth, Pune. The school for boys was later shifted to the campus in Koregaon park, and it has come a long way since then.
40 years after the inception of school, a separate school for blind girls came into existence in 1974. Soon thereafter, a vocation training centre for girls was established, in order to make them self sufficient in outside world. They were trained for self-employment and rehabilitation.
