BEHROZE N VACHA – As the wife of CDR Nariman Vacha, she always felt a deep connection with the physically challenged, particularly the deaf, mute, and others facing similar challenges. However, it was a meeting with a deaf-blind girl that truly opened her eyes to the enormity of their struggles. Driven by compassion and a sense of duty, she founded the Helen Keller Institute for the Deaf & the Deaf-Blind in Mumbai, honoring the legendary deaf-blind icon.

With only 150 bucks in her pocket, she started the institute in a small room with just three children and as many teachers. However, her unwavering determination and relentless pursuit of her purpose transformed it into the premier institute of its kind in the region. Today, she stands as the answer to all the prayers of the differently-abled, a beacon of hope and a pillar of support for those in need.
