Children and young adults with visual impairments face significant challenges to learn how to read & write without Braille assistive devices. A huge thank you in advance for your support in helping us bring literacy to Africa’s forgotten children. Our mission is not only to ensure that every child and young adult with visual impairments has access to Braille technology – their equivalent of pen and paper – but also to provide the support they require to receive a quality education. Young adults with visual impairments who receive a quality education and graduate have better opportunities to find employment and achieve 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 achieve their full potential and independence.
