Children and young adults with visual impairments face significant challenges in learning to read & write without Braille assistive devices being unable to access quality education. A huge thank you in advance, for your support in helping us bring digital literacy & skills to Africa’s forgotten children and youth with visual impairments. Our mission is not only to ensure that every child and young adult with visual impairments has access to digital, Braille technology – their equivalent of pen and paper – but also to provide the support they require to receive a quality education. Being able to access quality education and graduating from higher education with a career path is changing the paradigm for youth with visual impairments and resulting in better opportunities for employment and higher levels of social and economic inclusion. Your generosity will be a critical step towards helping us continue our journey to ensure that more of Africa’s forgotten children and youth with visual impairments, achieve their full potential and independence.
