Disability

Global Foundation has taken up the social cause of disability. India can’t become a developed nation by 2020 if we neglect and leave behind 5% of India’s population suffering from various physical challenges like visually impaired, deaf and dumb etc. Global Foundation is committed to tap the potential of differently abled people and integrate them with national economic system and productive force. Global Foundation is empowering visually impaired students with IT education and employment.
Chess Software for the Blind (TALK 64) developed by GTL’s IT engineers is a specially designed chess software for visually impaired. The software has speech and multiple language support with user-friendly interface. Talk 64 has provided more than 1 lakh practice games, along with different openings and variations. Global Foundation has entrusted All India Chess Federation for Blind (AICFB) for the promotion and distribution of Talk 64 software throughout the world.
Global Foundation has partnered with Global Innovsource, a Global Group Enterprise for helping visually challenged students in Job Placements

11 visually challenged individuals who have completed Hardware training are self-employed taking contracts to repair computers.
