  • Description


    We are a non-profit organization that advocates for the inclusion of people who are blind and visually impaired in Germany and Tunisia. The organization made it its mission to promote inclusivity through various methods.
    Our long-term goal is to build an education and culture center in Kairouan that offers inclusive learning and leisure activities. We are currently also working on creating an inclusive culture garden on an 800m² plot of land.
    From the very beginning blind and visually impaired people were highly involved in the design process to ensure accessibility for all. Various inclusive workshops on garden design and environmental education have already been carried out for this very purpose.
