At the event Dr. Phil Osagie, Founder and member of the board of trustees of the foundation reiterated the commitment of the foundation to prevention of blindness; educating the blind and encouraging them that there is hope in life, being visually impaired not withstanding.
The computer literacy training includes providing the blind with special software known as JAWS, which enables the blind to have access to speech on the computer and the computer talks to the user, who uses the keyboard to respond, without a mouse.
