Breakthroughs in Blind Charities: Making a Difference at Dreamscape
According to AFB or American Foundation for the Blind, over 20 million Americans experience a type of vision loss with services needed “expected to double by year 2030.” AFB helps those with vision loss through award-winning work such as advancement of technology, evidence-based research towards education, employment, and appeal and advocacy towards policymakers as well as “creating a more equitable world for people with disabilities.” The goal for all blind charities is to make breakthroughs in these areas. Here are just some of the charities that supported the visually impaired. Blind charities do their work by raising money for research and awareness of visual impairments. Blind charities help people by fighting stigma most of all. Just by existing, they are taking the fear away for someone to come forward and ask for what they need. Many focus on advocacy in that case and raise money. They create a network of people who infiltrate and educate through awareness and fundraising events. They partner and plan projects. There may be these similarities to how some help others regarding raising money and finding brand partnerships for their products, but their stories are not all the same. Not all charities that support people with visual impairments have a personal link to blindness. Joseph Sehwani at the Dreamscape Foundation does.
