About the Program

Very few visually impaired students in India are able to pursue higher education in STEM disciplines. One of the key barriers has been inaccessible study material – whether it be diagrams or equations or tables. RLF has been working for the last three years, in collaboration with NCERT and other agencies, to make the STEM school content accessible through production of a range of tactile books in STEM subjects. To take this initiative forward we are build capacity for making digital content accessible that can support visually impaired students wanting to pursue higher education in STEM disciplines.
