We work to achieve security so that all blind people can live and travel wherever they choose.
The purpose of this fund raising event, is to bring awareness to the public about the need for Braille, so that all blind people can compete on terms of equality. Proceeds from this event will go towards: (1) Chemistry Camp for high school students; (2) Braille Seminars for Parents of Blind Children;(3) Advocacy workshops to empower blind individuals to take control of their lives; and (4) Scholarships for blind college students working to achieve success.
