80% of blind children lack access to quality education. We are changing this.

What We Do

We fix the education gap for visually impaired children in Africa

New Braille Machines

We regularly review all countries where we operate to understand what number of Braillers are required to deliver a minimum level of access to all visually impaired students, and ensure that new Braillers are provided where needed.

Spare Parts

One of the core foundations of our work, we build a Brailler repair ecosystem in all of the countries where we operate, ensuring spare parts are available for Brailler maintenance.

Technician Training

We train technicians throughout Africa to build a field army of repair professionals and help provide new employment opportunities.

Teacher Support

With a pen and paper in their end (i.e. a Braille machine), we can unlock learning potential, and we help do this by supporting teachers with learning aids, books, and tools so they can be as effective as possible.

Unlocking Literacy For Life

We support education programming visually impaired students in schools throughout Africa
We unlock potential in children through access to Braille

By improving literacy, we help blind and visually impaired children to achieve higher job placement rates, improve their ability to integrate and increase their independence. We do this by ensuring that thousands of Braillers across East Africa, Ghana, and South Africa are maintained and in working condition. We also provide new Braillers where needed, and help support gifted students through University grants and job placement programmes. And now we're funding new initiatives that will lower the costs of our services and increase our reach even further.
