News In Brief
Our CEO, Mr. George Abraham has been invited to be a trustee on the CBM India Trust. The Christoffel Blinden Mission works to improve the quality of life of the worldâ€™s poorest persons with disabilities who live in the most disadvantaged societies. CBM has been extending its support to India since 1967. Score Foundation has been partnering with CBM since September 2011 and we are very excited about the invitation.
We are happy to share, that our long time partner, the Tech Mahindra Foundation has renewed their contract with Score Foundation, and is continuing supporting the radio programme and the Research and Eyeway Website projects.
A 4 minute version of our Documentary film â€œLife does not stop hereâ€ is ready. The film is a compilation of case studies of people from different walks of life who are all successful in their own rights. They all have one thing in common- they are all visually impaired. See the inspiring stories of people whose life does not stop at visual impairment. Click here
Our communications team has been hard at work for the past two months and we have resigned all the content on our Score Foundation website. The website now features more up to date and comprehensive information about each of our projects and areas of work. Check out our revamped website here.
In addition to this we have recently moved our Eyeway website onto a new platform with a brand new design and user interface. We are currently working at making the website more navigable and easy to use, as well as accessible. In case of any suggestions regarding either of our websites or content on the websites, please write to us at email@example.com. We would love to hear from you. Check out the new website today!
