About Khilte Chehre
Khilte Chehre is a mission dedicated to bringing smiles on the faces of blind people by helping them explore the world through the means of traveling. It was found by Mr. Amit Jain, a Delhi based entrepreneur and CEO of Rising Star Tours and travels – A company specializing in luxury travel.
The idea behind this mission is simple:
When you have no disability and you find yourself traveling, you often take for granted the obstacles you encounter on the route, such as looking for the check-in desk, delays, passport control, find a taxi from the airport to the accommodation, check-in at the hotel, choosing a meal, getting on with activities and so on…
However, for disabled people, these basic obstacles often become extremely taunting, where they have to keep wandering into uncharted territories where the language is not the only barrier. For so many of these issues are enough to put an end to their dreams of traveling and thereby, being deprived of exploring the fun, joy, and beauty of the world.
Through Khilte Chehre mission we make a humble attempt of making travel possible and accessible for disabled people, starting with visually impaired community, so that they can fulfill their unfulfilled desires, experience the food, beauty, and fun around the world and have smiles on their faces even for those who either can’t afford or unable to independently travel themselves.
The trips that are organized under the name of Rising Star Khilte Chehre, are not just fun and frolic but also confidence building, skill development and networking opportunities for those who travel with us.
Not just travel, Rising Star Khilte Chehre, a social arm of Rising Star Tours And Travels, is also determined to provide employment opportunities to those whose physical shortcomings overshadow their skill set by creating a network of people who needs the opportunity and those who create the opportunity.
The trips that we organize are not just for the purpose of fun and excurtion, but from our end qwe try to make the trips as much as a source of learning that a traveller can grasp. The trips are focused ass source of-
- Skill Development-
On every trip that we take, we try tomake surethat the travelers get tolearn a new skill that will help them to be more independent and earn a better way of living for themselves. Also, by the means of various events, we are also trying to provide a platform and promote the talent in the people whose ability is generally overshadowed under the word “disability”.
- Networking Opportunites.
The trios and events that are done under the name of Rising Star Khilte Chehre, along with the disabled community are always done in groups. By the means of such simple tool, we have been able to connect people in a bigger and wider network.
- Confidence Building.
Low confidence makes it less likely that a person will initiate action and more likely that a person will disengage because they doubt they can handle what needs to be done. Even with skill and motivation, without confidence, goals are not likely to be met.When given a chance to improve their self-confidence, people have shown wonders in their workings.
By the means of travel, it is a stepping stone in our attempt to improve the low self-esteem in people because they were constantly told that they are incapable of acheiving their goals just because they have certain shortcomings.
