Nikhil Finds His Voice
Nine year old Nikhil loves to sing and he is excelling in school. But he wasn't always this way. Last year, Nikhil's mother, Leela, began noticing Nikhil's vision problems when he began holding his books close to his face to read and complained that he could not see the blackboard in class. With his continued struggles to follow along in class his grades began to decline and he began trying to avoid school and classmates. His story reveals how with the help of Orbis's partner, Lumbini Eye Institute, he not only regained his sight but also his voice.
