SANZAF is a faith based socio-welfare and educational organisation which for the last 42 years, has been assisting the poor and needy throughout South Africa. Apart from welfare and developmental services rendered to the community, SANZAF arranges other events such as advocacy programmes for the physically challenged. In these ventures SANZAF often partners with other organizations, in this instance, the Phoenix Light Group for the physically challenged. Having partnered with the Phoenix Light Group on past events, such as, International Day of the Disabled, Blind Navigators Rally and White Cane Day, SANZAF are confident of another successful event on the 27 January 2018.
The 27th of January will be commemorated as World Braille Day; Braille is a type of dotted writing that the visually impaired utilize to read. On this day SANZAF will host the Louis Braille Programme to commemorate the visually impaired. This initiative will take place at Durban’s North Beach Park (Near Milky Lane) from 2 pm on Saturday, 27 January 2018.
Madrassa An-Noor for the Blind will be in attendance for the Braille Reading Recitals at which experienced braille readers will be sharing their knowledge and techniques with learners from the Madrassa in order to enable them to enhance their reading skills. In addition, educational games such as monopoly and scrabble have been adapted for the visually impaired to enable them to engage in these educative activities which serves to enhance their brail reading skills.
Please join us for this programme and acquire an insight into the visually impaired. You can make a difference by sponsoring a braille Quran or Book for the visually impaired.
