Trust commented on Computer Skills for Every Blind Child

We are currently working on hosting the 6th edition of the Special Schools Arts Festival in Zimbabwe. This comes on the 10th of June. Participants are drawn from special schools and disability resource units. We also host a few artists from the mainstream industry and talented nondisabled children participants from mainstream institutions. We seek to work with children with disabilities from other countries. We also seek participation of our children in children's arts festival elsewhere. Children from St. Giles Special School participated in the 5th edition of the World Children's Festival- (2015). We want more children with disabilities to access mainstream arts, sporting and education platforms. Art presents a subtle way of breaking barriers towards inclusive practices as we go. Our disability story shall never be the same as we promote early interactions and awareness of diverse social issues.

Thanks Childline Zimbabwe. I work with children and, my passion is in developing ICT skills for blind students.  ICT surely enables even blind children to communicate with anyone breaking barriers usually posed by lack of braille facilities in our communities.
