Publishing & storytelling initiatives for children
Braille is a system of raised dots that enable persons who are blind or have low vision to read and write. Persons with visual impairments read braille through touch. Braille can either be read on embossed paper or through refreshable braille displays that connect to computers.
We believe that exposure to diverse stories inculcates empathy and open-mindedness in children. With this in mind we began Naini Inclusive Books, Saamarthya’s publishing initiative, to bring out stories featuring characters with disabilities.
All our titles are available on our online store; we hope to launch them in Braille as well. We also offer read-along sessions with Shwetal Pandit, the author of our books. Families can join storytelling sessions that are a part of regular programming at Club Ananda. Schools and organizations interested in storytelling for their students can book a session by writing to us.
