Among other initiatives, Cybage Asha will be holding a de-addiction campaign at its drug de-addiction centre at Khulwadi on the Pune-Nagar road, on Monday. According to Ritu Nathani, Director, Cybage Software, volunteers of the company converted 256 page book into a soft copy of the Class X English digest book, which was later converted into the Braille format and printed.

“The conversion of this book into a Braille version is our small effort towards promoting literacy among the visually impaired. It’s amazing to see how advanced technology has enhanced the scope of making knowledge accessible to the people with special needs, an appropriate use of which will only help them overcome their limitations and shape their future better.” said Nathani.

At the de-addiction awareness campaign, 10 people, who have successfully managed to give up drugs, will be sharing their experiences.

“This initiative will make the villagers realize the benefit of this programme and the fact that it’s not unachievable. The personal experience of de-addicts will inspire more people to join the programme and benefit from it.” said Nathani.
