Making 'Eyeway' through AIR

 
The programme, which will be broadcast for the next 13 weeks by popular film and theatre personality Tom Alter, contains inspiring life stories of visually impaired achievers. It will also provide information on education, career opportunities, technology, legal rights and parenting.

"From this week, the programme will be on air at 9.16 pm every Wednesday on AIR FM Rainbow," said Pranay Gadodia, programme manager for ‘Project Eyeway,’ which is run by Score Foundation. The organisation produces the programme with a team entirely of visually challenged persons.

The programme went on air for the first time in November 2005 and has been popular amongst the visually challenged across the country. In February 2008, it was chosen as the best programme under the Social Initiatives category during the Radio Duniya Awards function held in Delhi.

"Though we have been broadcasting the programme in about 30 cities before, this is the first time we have managed to bring it to Bangalore," Gadodia, told Deccan Herald from the Foundation’s headquarters in Delhi.  "We have roped in Tom Alter to increase the programme’s appeal and do hope even the general public would learn about the challenges faced by visually challenged persons in their daily lives," Pranay added. The 15-minute programme is broadcast in Hindi. It can also be heard online at: www.eyeway.org
