Saksham is a project initiated in 2016, that strives to bring joy to the visually impaired community.
We don’t want them to depend on us. We don’t want them to need our support. We aspire to help them be independent. We aspire to help them be self-sufficient. We want them to walk with their head held high.
The Secret of Innovation
THE DESIGN THINKING CYCLE
The first step is to talk to those that you are trying to help. Form a bond, and try to walk in their shoes.
Based on what you learnt by talking to them, define the problems they face they face, according to them
Now that the problem is clear, you can focus on designing a solution. Brainstorm and be creative.
Let your ideas come to life, as you develop the first model of your design. Let your solutions to the problems face the test.
