  • How do you apply your Teruko Ikeda training in your life and work?

    I have been able to apply almost all the skills I have learned from the Teruko-Ikeda-ICT training. more significantly, the lessons on HTML codes and blogging have been very helpful. After returning to my country from the training, I created a blog for my organization for disseminating important information to youth. At present, I am a web master for Disabled Persons’ Association of Bhutan (DPAB). The basics I have learned from the training have inspired me to explore and learn more. I am, therefore, grateful to Ms. Teruko Ikeda, the main sponsor for the training programme, to the experienced tutors Mr. David and Mr. Amir, organizers, Mr. Wong, Ms. Christina, and the rest of the Japan Braille Library (JBL) team for giving us such a precious opportunity.

  • Most memorable experience during the Teruko Ikeda ICT Training

    It was real fun to meet lovely friends from different countries in the Asia-picific region during the intermediate ICT training held in Penang, Malaysia in August 2010. In addition to our interactive and interesting learning experiences at St. Nicholas Home, I can never forget the wonderful memories I and my fellow trainees shared--memories such as making fun of each other and laughing together for almost two weeks. The videos/photos we had shot still remind me of those sweet days. Minnie’s lively laughter, Bayar’s serious jokes, Lim’s funny statements, and the air-condition conflict with Gayan sstill linger in my memory afresh. The local tour to various historic sites and the trip to the beach were equally thrilling. It was really a wonderful moment to be with each and everyone of my batchmates. Our batch could have been the funniest group ever trained through the Teruko-Ikeda-ICT project. Thanks to all for making it possible!

  • Thoughts you’d like to share with everyone

    Being blind no longer restrains one from participating in the social mainstream. With the advent of various forms of assistive technology, we are proud to be able to do much like our sighted counterparts, if not more. So, my only friendly advice to my fellow-blind is that each and everyone must not take this life for granted. We must try to seize every opportunity that comes our way. Always be strong at heart. The IT knowledge we have gained from the Teruko-Ikeda-ICT training and other sources should not end with us. All of us must help other fellow-blind who have not been able to get such opportunities as we have had during our stay in Penang. I am glad that everybody has been equally enthusiastic to help each other through our googlegroup. I hope that with the development of this website, more people would be reached. Kudos to those who initiated this project.
