We live in a world designed for the sighted. For people without sight, learning, achieving gainful employment, and living a meaningful life is challenging.
Humans use five senses to learn and perform life’s daily functions—sight, touch, sound, smell, and taste. Sight is considered crucial as more than 75% of what we learn is acquired through our eyes. Without sight, learning, gainful employment, and cultural inclusion are often hindered.
When learning is hindered, blind individuals and communities suffer.
