As the 2019 curtain comes down with a few weeks left to cross over to a new a new year, inABLE.org was fortunate to host a team of guests from a globally respected organization MasterCard Foundation.
MasterCard Foundation representatives Andrew Kaylee Stewart and Andrew Okuzuwa joined inABLE Board Member Joe Kiarie, Tangaza University College Lecturer Brenda Kiema, and inABLE Business Development Manager George Siso joined on a tour of the inABLE computer labs at the Thika Primary School for the Blind. They were all briefed about inABLE’s work toward its mission to empower blind and visually impaired youths in Africa through computer assistive technology. And discussed how the blind and low vision students learn to use the computers and the benefits of computer literacy.
The enthusiastic group engaged with the students, who were busy in the inABLE computer lab doing different assignments, including typing or using Microsoft office word application to coding using basic HTML. Our guests heard about the learning process from the students themselves and also observed how the students utilized different software applications on the computers.
Anthony Wambua, who is a blind intern in the inABLE Computer-labs-for-the-Blind program, had a chance to demonstrate his coding skills and that is what really impressed our MasterCard Foundation visitors. They could not believe how a blind individual could clearly explain how coding is done and how he teaches coding to blind students at the school.
