Blind women are now afforded the opportunity to join in the game and develop skills and abilities that before were only in their dreams. The women are fighting oppression and demonstrating strength that is amazing and inspiring!
In Nepal, there is a common superstition that if you are born with a disability it is a punishment for misdeeds in a past life, blindness is no exception and can be judged especially hard. Blind women have a particularly hard time surviving in such a harsh society. They are already viewed as second-class citizens just for being women and because of their disability, they often find themselves ostracized from their communities.
