Be A Spark Of Inspiration!
Even in this day and age, many blind children in the United States and around the world are ‘falling through the cracks’ of society due to a lack of funding or lack of access to educational resources and services, resulting in language and mobility delays and leading to isolation and dependence. The situation is even worse if they have been diagnosed on the Autism spectrum or with other sensory conditions.
For over 16+ years, World Access For The Blind has specialized in working with these students, their families and school districts to formulate multi-faceted activational programs and mobility training approaches designed to instill knowledge, competence, confidence and self-directed independence in these students.
And as media coverage of our work echoes our clicks to billions of people around the world, we need to train and hire more instructors in the USA to meet the backed-up demand for our services.
Be a spark of inspiration for a blind student by contributing to our FlashSonar™ Tuition Scholarships, so that they can learn to light-up their world and leave the darkness behind.
‘Staying The Course Took Perseverance’
Following the founding of World Access For The Blind in 2000, 9/11 shook the economy “top to bottom”, as Success Magazine’s profile of Daniel Kish states. “All funding dried up overnight”, he [Kish] says [while waiting for his tax-exempt status to be confirmed]. He lived of his savings and credit cards. . . his gas was turned off . . .”my cupboards were bare”.
“But thousands of clients later, Kish is still operating on a budget far leaner than he’d like, in part because he never turns any student away.” Please help Daniel and the rest of the World Access For The Blind Team reach more students by making a donation , tax-deductible in the United States.
‘The Boat’s Become A Ship – We Need A Bigger Engine!’
We most welcome and appreciate the generous contributions you or your company/organization kindly make, allowing us to better meet increased demand for our services, while keeping our fees minimal or free to most students. World Access for the Blind is a nonprofit charity that relies on generous contributions to facilitate self-directed achievement for blind people in the U.S., and around the world.
Your donations help to cover related expenses where we provide pro-bono services to low-income students in need. This year we’ve set a higher fundraising goal and look forward to your thoughtful support.
