World Braille Week

January 2021

The World Braille Week is celebrated around the world every year starting on 4th January to commemorate the birthday of Louis Braille. Louis Braille is credited with inventing the Braille language which helps blind people to read as well as write.

The World Braille Week is celebrated every year to recognize Braille's efforts; his simple yet effective invention made it possible for blind people to read and write. Various NGOs as well as other organizations come together on this day to raise awareness about the apathy towards blind people and to help them be equal with the rest of the people.
