Every Tuesday after school, the students of Books for the Blind all gather up and we come up with various interesting projects such as making audiobooks, tactile books to assist the students at Nhat Hong Blind Centre. However, last Tuesday was even more exciting than that, we got a chance to visit the centre and it was an unforgettable experience. The teachers at the centre talked to us about the mission of the centre and we gained a much better understanding about the lives of visually impaired people, in order to raise a social awareness for these children and how our assistance would make a difference in their lives. We were shown how to make Braille books and also some basic instructions how to make type-up books.
After that, we visited some of their classes and we were all amazed to see how those children can deal with the difficult Braille language and we all wished that we could spend more time with them, to interact with them more and to get to know each other better. However, there will be another visit from Nhat Hong Centre in November and we are all looking forward to seeing them again.
