Haiti's New Sound Library Gift to Visually Impaired

Visually impaired youth are underserved in Haiti, marginalized by their disability. The Haitian Blind Aid Society (AAHS) and another foundation have created a sound library for them.

An inventory of works has been audiotaped, read aloud by youth volunteers. AAHS submitted a proposal to build a studio to expand their inventory, and won an education grant from World Innovation Summit on Education.

AAHS supports education, tutoring, and Braille training programs, improving the lives of 4,000 blind young people.
