    Instruments and games for the blind

    Day 253

    Making Music Together

    Back On Day 245, we visited 10 members of the blind community in Kyangwali Refugee Settlement. They were thrilled to receive the iconic white canes that identify them as being blind to their neighbors AND help them to get around.

    For these folks, days can get a bit boring. There aren’t any services or activities especially for them.

    So, on Day 253, we wanted to make sure Poly Poly and his friends had something to pass the time and enjoy each other. So, we purchased some board games and balls for the younger kids, and guitars and other musical instruments for everyone.

    Now these members of the blind community are getting together regularly in their leisure time to jam and make music together. They’re even playing together at their church.

    This change made possible by Atomic Data.
