I recently visited the Washington State Braille Library in Vancouver, Washington with my 10 year-old blind/visually-impaired friend, Ritika and her parents, Pushpa and Sanu.

This library has donated thousands of Braille books that have been sent to our TRIFC/NAWB National Braille Library in Nepal! Did you know that the US Postal Service will deliver Braille books all the way to Nepal at no charge? That made it possible to send all of those books, with more being prepared for shipment right now!

Librarian Colleen and her staff have been so helpful in the success of our Nepali library. My sincere thanks go out to everyone who has been involved in this high-impact program.

Note: Be sure and check out the photo of Ritika using the egg-carton and ping-pong ball Braille teaching device!
