2013-07: Implementation of Children’s Braille Camp

Whereas the AEBC believes that Braille is fundamental to literacy of those who are blind;

And whereas literacy skills are most effectively developed at a young age;

And whereas there are few opportunities in communities across Canada for children who are blind to actively participate in activities that promote and encourage the use of Braille;

Therefore be it resolved that a Committee be struck to develop, fundraise and implement a "summer Braille camp" for children that expose participants to positive, Braille-using role models and generally promote the use of Braille.
