Focus discussion with Special Needs Stakeholders

Greetings from Kilimanjaro Blind Trust Africa,


Kilimanjaro Blind Trust Africa (https://www.kilimanjaroblindtrust.org/)  is a charitable trust whose goal is to promote inclusion through access to quality education for learners with visual impairment in East Africa and Malawi. 


We also have a partnership with the Norwegian Government through the Global Innovation Hub to implement live labs (focus group discussions), a project under Innovate Now (https://atinnovatenow.com/), and an acceleration hub for Assistive Technology Users.


Currently, we have 8 startups under Innovate Now with solutions geared to the needs of people and learners with disabilities.  


Specifically, we have two startups that have developed products targeting deaf and visually impaired learners. 


One of the startups is an online curriculum content platform that targets deaf and visually impaired learners from the ages of 6 to 14 years. The focus group discussion will take place on Wednesday, 3rd August 2022 from 8:00 am-12:00 pm


The other startup has developed a board game that helps deaf learners from the ages of 4-7years to learn sign language and the formation of words.


In this regard, we invite teachers, parents, or specialists of deaf and Visually impaired learners to give feedback on the solutions. Please confirm your attendance by texting or calling Sheila Waswa on 0702349664. Include your name and session you'd wish to attend
