Lloyd commented on Computer Skills for Every Blind Child

The C in the acronym "ICT" is for Communications, and this is very crucial in the inclusion and development of children visually impaired. You will notice that in most cases communication between visually impaired children and others has been difficult because of language barriers. The use of computers will enhance communication between children visually impaired and others because computers have many forms and facets of conveying information, which include voice as well. For this reason I personally believe this project is a noble idea which calls all of us to rally behind it. I think you need to set up a national fund for buying the computers which people can contribute to. I am thus pledging $50 towards the project for a start.
