The New Idea
Peter Tiamiu is establishing independent Braille production centers to produce materials that cater for the academic, developmental, spiritual and leisure interests of the visually impaired. The centers also provide supplementary training in Braille literacy, enhancing the literacy culture among the visually impaired. Finally, the centers offer training in Braille printing for those who are prepared to try to expand Braille publishing further.
