Man With Vision Uses Technology To Empower Blind

This is the story of Paul Muddha who is a senior manager in charge of a call centre for Canara Bank in Bengaluru. Paul, 48-year-old, was born visually impaired and was abandoned in a school for the blind as a child.

Drawing from his own early struggle, Muddha is determined to help as many differently abled people as possible. Between his job at the bank and a family life, Muddha has over the last nine years attempted to enable blind and hearing impaired youth from Karnataka and other states adapt to a world “disrupted and reorganised” by technology.

Every year, Muddha’s centre trains 75-80 visually impaired people, and more recently those with hearing impairment, to use technology and obtain jobs needing computer and communication skills. He also runs three hostels for the blind — one at the training centre, another nearby and a third in the northern Karnataka town of Rannebennur.
