Helping Children Succeed

The students are very grateful that they have been empowered by having access to functioning braille machines. Learning would not be possible without your generous support. Thank you!

Life changing for learners

Life changed soon after I got introduced to a Brailler. Though the machine itself was so heavy to carry around, it eased my work in class. The first time I placed my hand onto a Brailler I was relieved. Thank you for enabling me to learn!

Making careers possible

This machine totally changed my perspective on Braille, because it proved to me that writing using a Brailler could make writing faster than that of my sighted counterparts. In fact, it really made me enjoy writing notes and stories and hence boosted my creativity and made me become a good story writer. A life without a Brailler is a life where creative thoughts are stuck inside my mind!
