Ears4Eyes is a social impact program that was initiated by PortableVoices in May 2018, to support education of low vision and blind children in Kenya. The main aim of the program is to help visually impaired children have access to curriculum-based learning materials and audio entertainment through production and distribution of FREE audio programming that helps them learn, stay informed and entertain themselves. The program is run and supported by PortableVoices Creatives.
Why EARS for EYES?
Over 45,000 visually impaired children in Kenya have no access to AUDIO learning resources based on the new Kenyan curriculum.
By producing curriculum based audio learning resources and distributing them for FREE to integrated and schools for blind across all the 47 counties in Kenya, the academic performance of visually impaired children will increase by over 35 percent annually. More importantly, literacy will offer them further opportunities and help end the cycle of poverty.
What Ears 4 Eyes Do
FREE Podcasts and Audiobooks
We are a dedicated team from PortableVoices that produce high quality audio content and distribute for FREE to visually impaired persons through blind schools and empowerment centers. The learning material are curriculum based and follow the same education principles provided by the ministry of education.
Technology changes everything! We are integrating voice technology into our content creation process that will enable visually impaired persons to take charge of their own learning. SOON Visually impaired persons will have devices they will be able to speak to and receive voice responses and content instantly.
We believe every child deserves a chance to education even if they can't see. In tandem with the belief, we give scholarships to visually impaired children from poor backgrounds with the aim to elevate the academic performance and improve life outcomes for all visually impaired children despite their backgrounds.
