As we near the end of 2022 and look ahead to 2023, there are many bright spots in the past year, but one of the brightest is 42 of our students who are blind or visually impaired landing their dream job in the Tech sector and other sectors. 42 students of our Digital Accessibility Testing (DAT), Python programming), SQL/Database and Corporate Skills training program landed jobs in top companies like Infosys, Goldman Sachs, Cognizant and many others (see list below), as Accessibility testers, software engineers and a variety of other corporate roles.

Vision-Aid’s annual dance productions have become a New England tradition of their own – a remarkable event that the entire community looks forward to with anticipation. This year’s show comes to audiences in a hybrid mode - allowing viewers to choose watching the show in person at a live screening or virtually from the comfort of their homes on July 31st, 2021 at 4 PM US EST, while still preserving the creative, dazzling flavor which have set these shows apart in a category of their own.
While COVID-19 continues to pose challenges, the innovative team leading this year’s effort is finding creative ways to make the show as memorable and vibrant as ever.
The event also aspires to raise much-needed funds for the visually impaired in India – a community which has been especially hard hit by the fallout from the pandemic, at all levels.
