Event description

Description

Raising money for Kenya Society for the blind to purchase an embosser preferably, the Braille boxV5 Embosser. There is a deficit when it comes to providing braille materials to trainees of rehabilitation in Braille. This is due to the fact that the Society does not have a braille printer and an embosser, which is meant to produce braille scripts.
This will work together with Duxbury software which is a braille translator that will help to convert printed text into electronic braille which can then be sent to the embosser for Brailling.

When Kenya Society for the Blind acquires the embosser,it means:-

1- Braille exercises will now be available to their trainees on demand.
2- Reference notes on IT will now be available
3- The society can help universities, colleges and high school – integrated schools students to access materials that were previously not accessible for use by visually impaired students, teachers and lecturers.

Fanaka Foundation is facilitating this fund raising because the founder Wambui Njau has a passion for the blind not just in supporting the blind in Kenya but also here in UK as a registered member at Herts Vision loss and a volunteer where she takes part in fund raising.e.g Walk a Mile in my Shoes event held at Welwyn Garden City to raise money for Herts Vision loss. Guests were blind folded and had to walk guided for a mile. Wambui also has blind students that she supports in Kenya through their education and provision of laptops accessible with their needs. A great cause indeed that will need support for well wishers and friends on the 7th December 2019. Sponsorship and donations are also welcome.

Look forward to see you all glammed up for this great cause!
