White Book

job and education for blinds

Our project started from a very nice friend who was blind. He could not read because it was expensive for him to afford the books. The books are not often published and when he finds an interesting title, he rarely could buy it.
We decided to help. There should be a solution. It also could be sustainable. After a lot of research, we found the solution. Out idea was to use disposable printed papers and books which are no longer needed. We print them with braille and just bind them. This way no recycling is needed. Next we designed a sharing center which will rent the books. Huge number of books are printed highly cheaper this way and access to books will be easier for our friend.
And we desinged a system to blind in us contury find a job and revenuue money because 70% of blind in us country are workless
