Tibetan Braille

Sabriye Tenberken went blind at age 13, but she still managed to pursue her dreams. Her 1994 visit to Tibet, and her encounters with blind children there, led to another dream, and now, because of this, we have Braille Without Borders.

Most importantly, because of Sabriye, we now have the Tibetan Braille system she developed at Friedrich-Willhelms University,in Bonn, Germany.

Please, visit her web site, linked above, and purchase her book, My Path Leads to Tibet. The proceeds are used to fund her work with the estimated 30,000 blind people in the Tibetan Autonomous Region.
