A huge thank you in advance for your support in helping us bring literacy to Africa’s forgotten children. Our mission is to not only ensure that every blind child has access to braille technology – their equivalent of pen and paper – but to also help support quality education for these children. Since blind graduates with braille literacy have an 80% better chance of finding employment, your generosity will be a critical step towards helping us continue our journey to ensure that more of Africa’s forgotten children achieve their full potential and independence.

Over the last 10 years we have delivered 800 Braille machines – the “pen and paper” for the blind – repaired a further 21,000 machines, trained 170 technicians and provided 50 tonnes of Braille paper – all part of an end-to-end programme to maximise our impact and touch the lives of thousands of children who would otherwise have few chances in life. We have also funded alternative technologies, expanded to four countries, and increased blind advocacy in local and national government.

We are just getting started, and to ensure we have another 10 high-impact years ahead we are hosting a very special 10th anniversary dinner gala in London on May 22nd at 6:30pm, featuring music and various activities. For those of you coming, we are very much looking forward to seeing you soon! If you would like information about the event, please contact us at info@kilimanjaro-blindtrust.org

This year we are also running a 10th anniversary campaign to ensure we have the resources required to expand our model into other countries, and to help us scale new and emerging technology that is showing a lot of promise in reducing our costs and increasing our impact, such as the new Orbit Reader 20. If you’d like to help us reach our goals for our fundraiser, please show your support today by visiting kilimanjaro-blindtrust.charity.org. Many thanks in advance for your generosity!
