Education for Blind Students is Not Up to Standard

Education for blind students is not up to standard.  Many parents, teachers and the blind community are aware that there isn’t enough being done to empower blind students.  We at Action are doing our part to mend that vast gap by trusting and implementing the technology needed for blind students to succeed.  We believe in building positive attitudes when it comes to blindness.  This is necessary for developing mature and capable students.

We cannot express how serious the lack of educational opportunities is in South Africa.  There needs to be a change in the education system of blind students so that they can enjoy life too. 

For students who are blind, a learnership opens doors for employment opportunities and increase in social and community involvement.

 We had five important problems which we wanted to raise. We also sought to suggest some concrete actions which in the real world of American education could actually be implemented and therefore begin to really make a difference in the lives of blind children. There is a lack of quality human resources for education for blind students and the best way for entry into the workplace is through a learnership program.

We help students with visual impairments to develop strength in social skills and independence.  We are an organization that is dedicated to making skills training a reality for the visually impaired.  We do this by providing specialized computer training that is top notch along with call center training. Our training staff are visually impaired and experienced with education for blind students.
