For this photo report, Claude Huber visited the Tata Agricultural and Rural Training Centre for the Blind in the Indian village of Phansa, north of Mumbai. With a staff of 25, the Centre used both physical therapy and occupational training to help visually impaired people lead independent lives. At this time, 50 people between the ages of 15 and 40 were receiving training at the school.
