Blind woman has vision of future. Kyila sees dream come true to empower children


28th May 2015


Kyila may not be able to see the world, but she has a clear vision of how to make it a better one for blind and partially sighted people.


The 29-year-old, who has been blind since birth, founded the Tibet autonomous region’s first “blind massage” center as well as its first kindergarten for visually impaired children.


“I do what I like to do, which is essential to me. I’m proud of that,” said the businesswoman, who opened the Enlightening Blind Massage Center in 2003.


“By providing job opportunities for massage therapists with sight problems, I wanted to help them live with dignity and become contributing members of society,” she said.
