UNITED BLIND PERSONS OF FIJI BOOKLET

Last year, APIDS provided a small grant to United Blind Persons of Fiji to produce a booklet "A Stepping Stone" contains 29 stories of UBP members, including six UBP Board Members.

It will raise awareness of the issues faced by vision-impaired and blind persons throughout Fiji. It will also be a tool with which to advocate for their human rights including access to inclusive education and employment.

A PDF version of the booklet is attached - apologies to those who find PDF difficult to use - but it the only format in which it is available
