Breaking Barriers for the Visually Impaired

Summer at IELC

This April, the academic year at IELC ended on a positive note. Our IELC representatives tell us that all our children were successful in their year-end school exams. What’s more, six students graduating from the school intend to pursue English Literature in their undergraduate studies! We are thrilled that so many of our students wish to take up English in college. Our hope, at the outset, was not only to provide IELC children with important communicative skills in English, but also to foster motivation to learn and love the English language. Kudos to our students on their academic success and career plans!

In keeping with our goal to provide computer education, the IELC management has brought in a new specialist computer teacher who will start training our students when school reopens on July 1st. Ann Foundation believes technology is a great way to break barriers brought on by visual impairment, and we are hopeful about receiving generous donations to support this effort. Donations can be made for any of our specific technology needs listed on this webpage. 

At this time, we are also pleased to announce that Ann Foundation has launched Project YouTube in our effort to make our projects more visible on the web. Since IELC has been one of our oldest and most successful projects, we decided to tell the story of IELC first!  After collecting audio and video material from IELC students and AF volunteers these last few months, we are working on completing the promotional film by end of summer. Keep an eye out for a Youtube link on our next update!
