Problem

3-job-for-the-blind

Visually impaired people are at a disadvantage at seeking jobs despite the fact that they are able to perform many different functions and processes. Among 1 million blind people, only 20% are in the work force. Employers tend to underestimate the capacity of individuals with visual impairments, unaware of what they can do or how to employ them.

Solution

The project seeks to build a job search and resources website for these individuals, while organizing  workshops, conducting consultation sessions and events to connect people with visual impairment with employers and local community members.
