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

    I will attempt as much as possible to implement what I have learned in my work and share it to the visually impaired friends in my area.

  • Most memorable experience during the Teruko Ikeda ICT Training

    It is interesting and pleasant to meet people with visual impairments from other countries with their uniqueness. It's fun to swap stories. I hope this friendship can be maintained. In this training, I not only got knowledge of ICT, but  also certainly very nice new friends.

  • Thoughts you’d like to share with everyone

    I want the sited to know that even  though we are blind, we are not left out of the technology, and for  the blind in order not to get discouraged by our blindness. We can access the technology if we are to truly learn.
