Vision-Aid joins hands with RLF to improve access to STEM
Vision-Aid has joined hands with Raised Line Foundation (RLF), a startup coming out of IIT-Delhi, to improve access to STEM education with tactile braille books for students with visual impairment. Currently most of the braille books available to blind students do not have diagrams and other rich content which makes science and math education more easily understandable and accessible to blind students.The new initiative introduces much improved, quality of STEM books with tactile diagrams and rich content and helps to level the playing ground for them to compete with their sighted counterparts in regular schools.
The pictures above are from a recent event where a total of 25 tactile books were distributed to blind students of National Association for the Blind (NAB) Chennai on 6th September 2021. This book distribution ceremony is just one of several such distributions happening across blind schools in India.
Please donate to improve the quality of STEM education in India, for blind students! Your support will help Vision-Aid provide more books to more blind students who wish to pursue STEM education.
