Our Work

Perkins India works with local partners in the health and education sectors to establish systems for early identification and intervention services so that children can be included in school and their community.

Here’s how Perkins India is making a difference:

  1. Bringing expertise to medical and educational professionals about how to appropriately screen and provide intervention services to children with vision impairment and other disabilities.
