Academic Braille Material Assistance for Secondary Blind Student

479.02 RM Collected Of 100000.00 Goal

The Braille Reading Material Assistance Program is designed to ease the burden of blind and visually impaired children or children with parents with the same condition and help them continue their school education in 2022. It’s important to note that braille-oriented reading materials are scarce and not easily available for sale in the market as it requires specific equipment and expertise to produce and read them. Further, the cost of producing braille reading materials is high and the process to publish these materials are time-consuming. The Malaysian Foundation for The Blind (Yayasan Orang Buta Malaysia) in collaboration with Ensany Humanitarian is seeking a fund to enable us to publish the more academic braille reading materials that will be given to 1000 students at no cost.


Target Group: The programmer targets 1000 blind and visually impaired students from around the country that are registered with the Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat dan Bahagian Pendidikan Khas.

Target Collection:
