Our Mission

Our mission is to ensure every child with a visual impairment has equal access to literacy and education. If the existing system does not provide them with this access we step in to bridge the gap and bring literacy to their door step.

What is Access Braille

According to WHO, 285 million people are visually impaired, of which 90% reside in developing countries. Very few of them get a chance to access literacy. The reasons are varied: lack of transport, cost, and in most cases, the inability of mainstream schools to accept children with visual impairments as they do not have the skills or equipment to teach them. Shockingly, only 5% of the reading material is in accessible format for the visually impaired. Access Braille is an organization that bridges the gap in the availability of educational material for visually impaired especially in developing countries like India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Ghana, Liberia and other African nations. The mission of the organization is to have Braille kits and books in readable formats available readily to those who need them.
