A heart surrounds Keep the Promise, to the right are the words: A bright future for students who are blind and visually impaired

Call to Action

It is essential that the per student allocation be increased, since $269 per year is insufficient to provide students with the accessible technology tools APH is developing. The Keep the Promise Campaign increase to $1,000 will help give students who are blind and visually impaired get the tools they need for education and employment opportunities.

"I continue to be grateful for all of the products APH distributes to our schools. I use multiple products on a daily basis that enable my students to feel objects that they might not otherwise get to experience."

Lisa Tabaka, Teacher of the Visually Impaired (TVI)
