Organized by: World Braille Day 2013

Description :


World Braille Day is marked on January 4. It is the anniversary of the birthday of Louis Braille, the inventor of braille writing system. 
Louis lost his sight when he was three years old after an accident in his father's workshop. He later learnt to read using a system based on raised letters which one could feel with the fingertips. 
While at school, he was introduced to a reading system that relied on raised dots, that the army used for reading messages in the dark, when they couldn’t see. Louis developed the system further for the use of blind people. 
Today Braille is used throughout the world.

On this special day 
on behalf of all kids using Braille to read
