One of the leading names in Braillers, which are essential writing devices for the
visually handicapped persons, is Perkins of U.S.A. The cost of importing Perkins
Braillers into India is high and the procedure cumbersome. With a view to making
these Braillers easily available at an affordable price in India, WORTH Trust entered
into a collaboration agreement with Perkins in 1996. Under this agreement, several
of our workers with disabilities were trained at their facility in America and experts
from Perkins visited here to offer further training and guidance. Today, these world
class machines are assembled at our works in Katpadi, using original components
shipped from America and carry the same international guarantee. To add to the advantage
of lower labour costs in India, Perkins has also arranged a subsidy through the
Conrad N. Hilton Foundation making it possible for these Braillers to be madeavailable
in India and the developing world at a cost much lower than the import price from
U.S. In India itself the braillers are sold well below cost, thanks to a generous
subsidy extended by WORTH. Plans are also afoot for production of Braille Slates
by WORTH, under a similar collaboration agreement between the two organizations.
WORTH Brailler Unit is certified for ISO9000:2000 for all of their components.
