We transcribe, produce and despatch Braille Bibles to those in overseas situations (not for the UK) who do not have the means to obtain Braille resources for themselves. We produce the Braille Bible, to order, for partner groups and organisations who work among people with visual disabilities, or whose programmes bring them into contact with Braille readers. To date, we have transcribed and produced Braille in 43 languages and we are usually in the process of transcribing one or two new languages at any given time. Indigenous groups and organisations that work among people with visual disabilities distribute the Braille so we are confident that it reaches the end users. Some funding comes from the groups who order from us but to help with the shortfall and to meet the needs of others we are grateful when we receive gifts, legacies and grants which enable us to increase our Braille production.
We are always glad to receive enquiries and new orders from organisations that distribute or use Christian literature in their overseas work. We welcome the opportunity of discussing the possibilities with those interested in reaching this marginalised people group. Please also look at our languages page for more details and then feel free to contact us.
