Pakistan’s first Internet cafe for the blind

August 8, 2013


Writer: Shabbir Waghra

Islamabad is the proud home of Pakistan’s first Internet cafe for the visually impaired. It’s operations are looked after by the Pakistan Foundation Fighting Blindness. During my visit, I met some exceptionally talented people like Sajjad-ur-Rehman who is doing his PhD from Islamic University Islamabad in spite of being complete blind. Here is my story about him and others who are benefitting from PFFB initiatives.
