New Website – M N Banaji Home for the Blind

Established on July 16 1956, The Muncherjee Nowrojee Banajee Industrial Home for the Blind (MNB) is a monument to the munificence of late Serenbai Banajee who gave this bungalow for use and occupation in memory of her father to start a residential industrial and vocational training centre for visually-challenged men. Thus the Muncherjee Nowrojee Banajee Industrial Home for the Blind was registered under the Bombay Public Trust Act 1950.

Vocational Training For Blind Men – (1956)
The first initiative of this institution, it was targeted at men between the ages of 18 and 45 years. The Weaving and Handloom Section helps them produce quality floor swabs and other fabrics for household articles.
