Support NCBIs Access Education Programmes
Your gift is the gift of opportunity.
Education is key to enabling people to reach their potential but remaining in education or availing of lifelong learning opportunities is a challenge when you are blind or visually impaired if the books and resources you need are not accessible in different formats such as digital, audio, braille or large print.
You are supporting a person remain in school or college by funding a bursary grant to provide adaptive technology to help students fully participate and succeed in their chosen studies. This gift could also provide access to NCBI Library giving access to thousands of publications in accessible formats. Enjoying reading becomes especially challenging when you lose your sight in older age as you have to adapt and learn new skills so availing of NCBI vocational training in Braille and literacy classes is a renewed lifeline for many.
