GAMES LIBRARY FOR THE BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED
In the Zollikofen region, various TEXAID used-clothing containers collect second-hand clothes, the proceeds of which go towards the foundation for blind and visually impaired children and young people. TEXAID generates funds through the sale of second-hand clothes. These funds go to its six participating aid agencies, as well as to numerous regional organisations. The foundation for blind and visually impaired children and young people is one such organisation.
Since 1987 the Zollikofen school for the blind in the Canton of Berne has operated a games library offering adapted games and tactile picture books for children and adults with a visual impairment. The games library is reliant on donations for more than two thirds of its operational costs. The money raised by TEXAID helps the foundation to finance the running of the games library.
