Audio Books Created
Beneficiaries Received Audio Books So Far
01. Why the project is?

People with visual impairment face significant challenges in attaining education parity with other students, and access to books remains one of the top challenges along with limited pool of ‘writer’ to help during standard examination. With India having highest disability rates (2.2%) among entire population and lowest literacy rate, there has been no systematic support for these students in their education journey. Braille books remains expensive and limited, and audio books are hard to find – causing significant challenges in learning.

02. What the project is?

The vision of this project is to provide visually impaired students with access to educational resources that are equal to those of their sighted peers. Audiobooks can help to level the playing field by providing these students with the ability to learn and grow at their own pace. By providing audiobooks for visually impaired students, we can help them to achieve their full potential and reach their dreams
