“Learning Braille has opened up my world … As an adult having to learn to live a completely new life can be challenging. With Braille I can send and receive email…read the news and events happening in the world, read books and I am learning to take my own affairs back. Braille gives me the ability to live an independent life again”
(Quoted from a letter of appreciation from a Braille House student who lost both her sight and her hearing due to a sudden severe illness)
The work done at Braille House to support children and adults who are blind or have low vision to achieve their life’s goals needs resources – that is money and people power.
There are a number of ways you can get involved and play your part to ensure access and inclusion for everyone.
