Restablishing Bartimaeus in 2022

Since January 2019, Bartimaeus has experienced significant disruptions arising from the covid pandemic lockdowns and the loss of foreign contribution registration preventing the receipt of foreign funds. In spite of these challenges Bartimaeus has continued to function with reduced student numbers and is now working towards achieving FCRA and restablishing the institute at full strength by the end of 2022.


Our Vision

We seek to educate and rehabilitate visually impaired young people so they can become regular, employable members of Indian society. We do this knowing that the blind are ambitious to live as normal a life as possible, supporting both themselves, and also their families. This is the need that we are fulfilling with the support of local benefactors and the Christadelphian community world wide.

Our Challenges

At present, the poorer sections of Indian society are not geared to educating the blind in the modern sense of the word. Their employment prospects are considered to be limited to basket weaving and garden furniture and very few families have the means or the initiative to enable them to go further.
