Welcome to Blind Rocks!

You and me, a wonderful we

Who we are?

Blind Rocks! is a non-profit organization established in Nepal by a group of likeminded people who had a common goal of empowering blind people. It was registered in District development committee and District Administration Office in Kathmandu on May 27, 2014. Simultaneously on May 29 it was registered (Reg. No 1283) in Social Welfare Council. We are dedicated to changing the lives of blind people in Nepal and beyond by enabling them to share every moment of their lives with sighted people without being discriminated against.

Blind Rocks! Vision

We envision an inclusive, egalitarian and barrier free world where blind people are integrated with the mainstream, living a life of dignity, independence and with access to equal opportunities in all spheres of life. A world where blind people are productive members of a society having the safety and autonomy to make their own life decisions.

Blind Rocks! Mission

We work to empower blind and visually impaired people to lead independent, productive lives while simultaneously working to create a society that supports the safety, empowerment and integration of blind people into the mainstream through awareness building, advocacy and policy shaping.

Blind Rocks! Goal

The goal of Blind Rocks is to empower blind people, with a holistic approach through a series of training workshops in order to bring them out of their comfort zones and to provide on-going support.

About Founder

Striving through life as a visually impaired person gave me the courage and strength to fight for a course that I believe is for me and other visually impaired persons. I am a motivational speaker, dancer and a visionary from Nepal. At age sixteen I lost my eye sight. Initially I struggled to cope with my new situation. I was able to overcome many challenges to lead a life filled with happiness and dignity. Commonly blind people are treated as objects of pity and charity and I seek to empower the blind as I have empowered myself.

THANK YOU for speaking at Women LEAD's 2014 Leadership . We all learned so much from you and you've now become a role model and hero to 30 more young women in Nepal!.When I asked the girls what they learned from you, here's what Dipasha said: “No matter if you’re disabled, never let your dreams be disabled.
