Thank you very much for your support! Due to your support our Ukrainian 1000 blind children receive free Braille books with illustration, they can get the needed development and be literate. We get feedbacks on how important it is for them to have such books. These benefits for our blind children are due to your contributions.
The knowledge gained by us during the trips to Poland and Sweden, supported by the Global Given, we invest in our books.
1. During the reporting period, we have 4 new books printed in Braille, which were provided for free of charge to libraries for the blind children of Kharkov, Kiev, Nikolaev, Zaporozhye, Vinnitsa, Uzhgorod.
2. We made new tactile books for very small children "Touch piggy bank" and "Glove".
3. Our Resource Center has signed the first cooperation agreement with the contemporary Ukrainian writer Larisa Nitsoy who writes fairy tales for children, so we could print her fairy tales in Braille for our children. On May, 21 in Kiev, and on May, 25 in Kharkov, there will take place meeting for the small blind readers with the writer. Children will receive a collection of fairy tales written by Larissa Nitsoy "Nesluhi i vereduni" printed in Braille. With the help of tactile illustration the blind children will get acquainted with a cat called Murkot, Lesyunya Veredulya and other heroes of fairy tales.
4. In May, in Kiev “Ostrovsky” Library there will take place an exhibition of Braille “design for all” books published by our resource center.
Dear Friends, thank you again for your support you provide to pur project to create Braille books for the blind children! Please, pay attention to our new project Introduce 30 Blind Youth To European Values.Our blind children become older and they face many barriers and challenges on the adult world. In Ukraine it is impossible to find a regular job according to the profession received, navigate independently, and get education without barriers. With the help of this project we plan to introduce our blind you to the European standards of living, empower them to fight for their rights in Ukraine and promote independent life. In Bulgaria 30 blind youth will get the needed knowledge and skills to implement them into their NGO’s potential to represent their rights and fight for them.To support our new project follow this link
Dear Supporters, due to your support we make the lives of Ukrainian blind children easier and more comfortable! We LOVE our children and we do our best to help them enjoy their lives and be happy!
