Braille literacy statistics in India show that there are 15 million blind people in India, two million of whom are children. In fact, one out of every three blind people in the world lives in India. But the silver lining behind this tragic situation is that up to 80 percent of blindness is curable or preventable.

  • One out of every three blind people in the world lives in India – an estimated 15 million blind people live in India.
  • Every year, 3 million people develop cataracts in their eyes.
  • There are 2 million blind children in India. Only 5% of them receive any education.
