For blind and visually impaired people, the ability to read and write in Braille is the key to literacy

What are these red tomatoes? So they ask people who come to Yardem on an excursion in order to get to know more closely the activities of the Rehabilitation Center under the Yardem Foundation and for the first time see the layout of the Braille six-point. The same Braille six-point, with which the rehabilitants learn the letters of the alphabet.

With the start of the courses at Yardem for the visually impaired people on the See and Hear with Heart project, Russian Braille lessons also began. In the first lesson on the very same layout, the rehabilitants (it should be noted not only the blind, but also the visually impaired, who have vision and those who want to teach Braille to the blind) learned how to draw letters.

For blind and visually impaired people, the ability to read and write in Braille is the key to literacy, successful employment and independence. Studying the Braille system will enable a blind person to go to work on a computer with a Braille display and on a Braille printer.
