Project - Blind Walk

World Sight Day, the Club, along with our Rotaract Clubs - Colombo Midtown, Achievers Lanka Business School, Australian College of Business and Technology and The University of Colombo Faculty of Management and Finance organized a Blind Walk in Colombo joining 55 other locations in 5 countries around the globe in an initiative by Project Vision in Bangalore.

 The Walk comprised over 200 participants with the sighted walking blindfolded with the blind over a distance of 1 km. The purpose being to show the sighted what it felt like to be blind and to encourage the participants and the public to donate their eyes when no longer needed.

The walk culminated at the University of Colombo grounds with the formation of a human mosaic recorded by drone and a presentation of refreshments to all participants and special gifts to the blind. Some trade stalls to collect funds for the program and entertainment for all. The program was covered in the press and TV media and was a public relations success in addition to aiding the community.
