We Can Face the World

Our Objective 

To examine how visually challenged people can read, write, and do many more things.


The Theory

Visually Challenged

When someone has vision impairment, their eyesight will not be in a "normal" level. Vision impairment may be caused by loss of eyesight, which occurs when the eye no longer sees objects as clearly as it once did. Vision impairment might also be caused due to loss of visual field.

Helen A Keller

Helen Keller, whose full name is Helen Adams Keller, was a blind and deaf American novelist and educator. She was born in Tuscumbia, Alabama, on June 27, 1880. Around the age of 19 months, Keller contracted a disease (scarlet fever) that left her blind and deaf. At the age of 6, Alexander Graham Bell examined her. So, he dispatched a 20-year-old teacher named Anne Sullivan (Macy) from Boston's Perkins Institute for the Blind, which was run by Bell's son-in-law. Her education and training through her teacher were a remarkable achievement. It was beneficial for the education of the other people with same condition. From March 1887 until her own passing in October 1936, Sullivan, an exceptional teacher, stayed with Keller.

Below are few of the works she penned about her life

  • The Story of My Life (1903)
  • Optimism (1903)
  • The World I Live In (1908)
  • Light in My Darkness and My Religion (1927)
  • Helen Keller's Diary (1938)
  • The Open Door (1939)

She started giving lectures in 1913 (with an interpreter present), mostly in support of the American Foundation for the Blind.

Anne Sullivan

Joanna Sullivan, often known as Anne Sullivan, was born on April 14, 1866, in Feeding Hills, a town close to Springfield, Massachusetts. She was Helen Keller's American teacher, and she is well known for her success in raising people without sight, hearing, or normal speech to a high level of education.
