After the impact of the 2020 epidemic, TDTB will actively launch a series of activities in 2021 with the pace of the spring, combining new types of activities with enterprises, and expect more people to understand and support visually impaired services through these activities. So that TDTB can serve more visually impaired friends. The following are the results of our first season.
1. General Assembly
TDTB is formed by a group of people with the same philosophy. In March, we held the annual membership meeting. In addition to reporting last year’s work results and funding use to members, we also let everyone know what direction TDTB will head in 2021 for the implementation of the visually impaired service. In the meeting, there were lively discussions and consensus on this year's development priorities and future goals.
2. Volunteer training
Volunteers are an important human resource of NPO. To make this group of volunteers who are full of service enthusiasm become an important force in services for the visually impaired, TDTB especially hires professional lecturers to handle a series of volunteer training. A total of three sessions were handled this season, including the understanding of the society, the introduction of the visually impaired (personal guidance method) and practice, understanding the DAISY audiobook, the introduction of recording software and hardware, the exchange and discussion of recording works. Not only allows volunteers to understand the connotation of services for the visually impaired but also enables volunteers to become a strong backing for TDTB through activities.
3. Art experience for the visually impaired
To let the visually impaired through the artistic experience, enrich the spiritual level, and get out of the closed environment. This season, TDTB went to Taipei Hong-gah() Museum to organize an art feast, allowing the visually impaired to use professional guides and props prepared by the museum to make contemporary art not out of reach.
4. Community cooperation
To increase local service links, we participated in two local community meetings this season. In addition to letting community NPOs understand our services, we also took this opportunity to link and cooperate with elderly service units to promote related courses in the future. I believe in the future. Can stimulate more cooperation possibilities.
5. Enterprise Cooperation
This season, TDTB participated in the selection activity of Yuanta Foundation's Dream Big Project. It used the information and education interactive platform for visually impaired students as the content of the proposal and won out of more than 100 units across the country. In each evaluation stage, whether it is the foundation's site visitor or the final evaluation meeting, TDTB can always maintain its original intention of serving, and finally won the affirmation of the Yuanta Foundation jury and became the last 6 awards. The unit has given TDTB colleagues great encouragement.
6. Vocational training for the disabled
Vocational training for the physically and mentally disabled is an important policy for the government to encourage the disabled to transform from the role of receiving services to contributing to society. This season, TDTB also participated in the fierce government vocational training bidding case as usual, and based on the employment trend in the economic environment after the epidemic, proposed the visually impaired media production and digital marketing courses. This innovative service has been favored by the reviewers. Follow-up enrollment and classes will begin in the second season. It is hoped that such courses can find another new career for the visually impaired.
