CAMEROON - INTEGRATED SCHOOL FOR THE BLIND
The Integrated School for the Blind was started in 1981 to assist children with visual impairments. Promoting sustainable livelihood, the school operated a 4-year program for beginners that prepares students to function in a seeing world. In these 4 years the students learn daily living skills through mobility and orientation training. They also learn to read and write Braille. All students regardless of age begin in this program. Once they are both confident and competent in their skills, they move onto mainstream schools. Currently there are 17 students in the beginner class and 47 students in mainstream schools where ISFB teachers provide support in translating materials into Braille.
Your gift of $250 will subsidize the tuition for one student for one year.
Many of these children are orphaned, abandoned, or come from poor families so they are unable to pay the school fees.
