Mission Statement 

Model School for the Visually Handicapped was inaugurated on 4th January 1959 by Govt. of India on the occasion of 150th birth anniversary of Louis Braille, the inventor of Braille script that facilitates teaching and learning for the blind. At present, there are 240 students enrolled in this co-educational residential school situated at 116, Rajpur Road, Derhadun. The primary objective of the school is to facilitate teaching and learning of visually challenged students for which the school is geared with all possible resources and staff for this purpose. The school intents to enable students to be self dependent in their life in spite of their visual impairment. Every effort is made for all round personality development of students.

The mission of our school is that every learner enrolled in the school is “
BRAILLE LITERATE”. Needless to say, Braille literacy for them is an indispensable step towards making the visually challenged self dependent. In accordance with the discussion held with the students and staff, decreasing interest of students in learning Braille is a worrying factor that needs to be remedied instantly. THE SCHOOL AIMS TO ATTAIN TOTAL BRAILLE LITERACY BY THE YEAR 2020. For this, dependence on the use of audio material for learning is to be reduced. 

The advent of technology for the visually challenged cannot also be lost sight of. The visually challenged too are empowered with the use of technology by installing and making use of screen reading software's. Hence, 
THE MISSION OF THE SCHOOL IS TO BE COUPLED WITH ENABLING STUDENTS IN THE USE OF LATEST TECHNOLOGY ALONGWITH BRAILLE LITERACY. An empowered visually challenged youth will certainly be in a position to contribute to the progress and development of society to the best of his abilities. 

To conclude, the mission of our school is to obtain Braille literacy along with making all the students of the school technology savvy with a purpose of making them self dependent; preparing them for their career and life and ensuring their inclusion in the main stream. The school will not only make necessary arrangements for the same, but also Endeavour to motivate the stakeholders so as to achieve the mission.
