Education is one of the key areas that Kenya Society for the Blind focuses on, as mandated by the KSB Act. The Society is always on the lookout for more strategic partners in the education sector, to further this agenda since education is a key pillar in line with the Governments Vision 2030 Blueprint.
The KSB team has this month gotten into an arrangement with the Cooperative University of Kenya, to train users on the use of Computer Aided Technology including the use of screen reader software and especially the use of NVDA, Bookshare and other eResources. These are key tools that enable persons with visual impairment interact with computer based systems, and the virtual world in general.
The Society looks forward to extending its education and rehabilitation services into the tertiary education space by working closely with Universities and other institutions, to better the lives of visually impaired learners in these institutions and beyond.
