Dell provides computers to visually impaired children

Visually impaired children at the Institute of Blind here Wednesday had their first experience of technology when global IT major Dell Computers opened its computer centre for them.

Set up with funds from Dell Foundation, the centre is fitted with 12 Dell desktops and 2 Dell Latitude laptops.

The hardware is enabled to support software programs for the visually impaired children to aid their education.

'We have made Chandigarh our home for the last two years and we have grown significantly here. We have a resolve to actively contribute to the local community,' Dell International Services managing director Romi Malhotra said after Punjab Governor S.F. Rodrigues and his wife Jean Rodrigues inaugurated the centre.

Malhotra said that the effort was to make the visually impaired children part of the rapidly expanding IT services.

Dell had earlier set up similar computer centres in Hyderabad and Bangalore.
