Through Scarletts Eyes shared ProjectBrailler's photo. ... See MoreSee Less

Our August profile child is Lily-Grace. She is the reason behind Project Brailler She turns 8 on Sunday. A stroke on day four of her life wiped out her visual pathways. She has nystagmus. Optic nerve atrophy and squints. Last year an MRI revealed mild cerebral palsy. Project Brailler started when I entered her for a competition in 2014 through Wonderbaby to win a Smart Brailler. https://www.facebook.com/wonderbaby.org/ Until then no one had presented her with the opportunity to learn braille. She is a cane user. Last Nov her headteacher banned the use of her long cane at school. It didnt hold her back. She is now at a wonderful new VI resourced based school. A brownie and keen ballet dancer with the all inclusive group Flamingo Chicks. https://www.facebook.com/flamingochicks/ Last November she performed with her friends at No 10. In May she was voted to become an Agent of Change. Last week she spoke at the JCI UN summit. Lily-Grace is a bright, confident and tenacious young lady. She is happy and smiles all the time. She is showing us and the world Blindness is not to be feared. That a full and happy life is completely achievable. #Blind #KidsCan #Braille #Cane Photography: Matt Revell https://www.facebook.com/Matt.Revell.Photography/
