🌞A studious summer... a fun summer: 24 participants, 384 hours of learning!🚀

We're delighted to share with you the success of our digital workshops this summer. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to welcome no fewer than 24 participants, ready to brave the summer temperatures to explore new applications and strengthen their digital skills.

The response has been tremendous, and it reminds us that digital is much more than just a tool. It represents a real lever for autonomy, breaking down the barriers of isolation and strengthening social ties for visually impaired people.

This summer, our participants decided to extend their learning experience by sharing convivial lunches. This initiative created a warm and supportive atmosphere, strengthening relationships within our community.

Cumulating nearly 1,000 hours of learning since the beginning of the year, this exceptional achievement is made possible thanks to your invaluable support.

Thank you for being part of our adventure and enabling the digital inclusion of the visually impaired.

Focus on peer support updateDigital learning workshop

Focus on peer support

Each week, our workshops are divided into two groups: 

 - The first group led by Jacques, a retired blind member, enables participants to discover the various smartphones and tablets and their functionalities.

 - The second group led by Taha, a young blind man always accompanied by his dog Oxford (a bit of a mascot 😊 ), discovers all the applications that will enable them to gain autonomy in everyday gestures and foster social links: Facebook, Sncf Connect, Plans - native application on iPhone, Mobristras, Soudscape/VoiceVista, Seeing AI, VoiceOver, Vocaléo, Transite, etc.The uniqueness of these workshops lies in their peer-to-peer organization. Indeed, the constant monitoring of new applications and the facilitation led by volunteers who are themselves in a disability situation removes the learners' brakes when faced with the expertise of their peers.
 
This peer-aid approach illustrates the collaboration and solidarity of those involved, reinforcing the spirit of partnership in the pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals! 

A great success! updateDigital learning workshop

A great success!

The first sessions of digital learning workshops for visually impaired or blind people enabled us to sound out priority needs and desires, and above all to support people in resolving the first problems identified. They were a great success, with no fewer than 15 people per workshop, and as many problems solved.
