Summary

This project will help employ ten to fifteen visually impaired persons living in Rwanda through training them in massage therapy and providing them the skills needed to pursue careers in the field. Visually impaired people have the highest rate of unemployment of any demographic in Rwanda and can't even meet their most basic needs and provide for their families. Seeing Hands Rwanda aims to end the stigma against visually impaired persons and those with other disabilities in Rwanda.
