Celebrating a 131st Birthday

Jul 29, 2011

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen nor even touched, but just felt in the heart.”

So said Helen Keller, whose birthday was celebrated last month. She taught the world to respect people with different abilities by setting a personal example of courage, determination and conviction despite her multiple disabilities.

The Amway Opportunity Foundation in India, along with 14 National Project for the Blind partners, celebrated the 131st birthday of Helen Keller on June 27.

Volunteers made the day more special day for all visually challenged students by engaging them in a variety of interactive programs like debates, reading and singing. Participating students were given special certificates.

Amway Human Resources teams conducted communications skills and personality development workshops for visually impaired students at computer centers in Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad.

To top off the day, Amway used this celebration to inaugurate its 14th computer center for visually challenged students at the Guwahati Blind School.

What a happy birthday!
