DEMONSTRATION ON THE NEW ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR LEARNERS BY DEFEATING BLINDNESS IN ZAMBIA (DBIZ)

The Zambia National Association of Persons with Physical Disabilities (ZNAPD) have been working with various cooperating partners e.g. Defeating Blindness Zambia (DBIZ) and other stakeholders to provide assistive devices to its members.




On Monday, 11 th April, 2022, ZNAPD received visitor from (DBIZ) in conjunction with Grosscare Zambia Limited to demonstrate on some assistive device in hopes of incorporating efforts in improving teaching standards of Zambian learning institutions and foster inclusion of learners with disabilities, some of the items presented were braille materials: hand-frames, braille paper, assistive technologies for the blind, assistive devices for other disabilities and so on.



It is unfortunate that most learner with disability are at a disadvantage in Zambian institutions as a luck of these assistive technologies has made it difficult if not impossible for them to receive the same quality of education provided to non disabled student, therefore ZNAPD and DBIZ in conjunction with Grosscare Zambia Limited saw the need to fight for the improvement of the education standards for learners with disabilities to help them get the same quality of education provided to non disabled students to enable them to function and perform in various fields of work after they graduate on level ground with others.



ZNAPD, DBIZ and Grosscare Zambia Limited would like to call upon other stakeholders and corperating partner in and outside the disability movement to stand with us and eliminate this injustice to our learners who deserve the same chance of learning and building their careers like anyone else with the dignity of their privacy.
