TorchIt is an Indian organization where we have taken up the mission to provide the Differently Abled community with the “Power of Independence” by developing credible yet affordable products/services. TorchIt intends to be a social impact venture by working towards empowerment of the differently-abled section by providing with the platform to thrive.
The idea originated by having empathy around the troubles faced by the blind/visually impaired persons in their day to day lives causing immense mental trauma for the person, their families and their well-wishers. The concerns cause them to be dependent on others thereby causing a lack of confidence and eventually leading them to stay unemployed. We started our journey of helping out the community by developing our initial product, ‘Saarthi’, which is an assistive mobility device that helps the blind/visually impaired in detecting an obstacle on their path with a 99.7% accuracy. Our vision is to touch lives of more than 285 million visually impaired across the world with more than 70 millions of them in our own country. more
