WD PARTNERS WITH NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE BLIND

WD a Western Digital company and a storage technology pacesetter, partnered with the National Association For The Blind (NAB) in India to provide Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) to visually challenged children. The project spread across 2 months, covered about 60 children of the age group of 5-18, was implemented at the NAB institution where students with visual and hearing challenges, along with their supervisors were introduced to DMT. 

 “WD is proud and honoured to work with the The National Association For The Blind as a part of our CSR commitment to the region. The NAB has been instrumental in empowering the visually challenged population of India since 1952,” said Subroto Das, Director – India & South Asia, WD. “We look forward to studying the progress and impact of this noble project.”

DMT has demonstrated potential in developing expression, in channeling physical energy and has proven therapeutic for children with visual and hearing challenges. The objective of the project is to enhance self-confidence, to aid in expression building and to overcome the phobia of communicating along with reducing the risk of muscle and bone disease.

WD previously worked with the Smile Foundation for the third edition of the Ramp for Champs initiative where it sponsored the education of 125 underprivileged children for a year.
