Hi Everybody Akeisha my beautiful daughter(16) was born with a rare condition called Septo Optic Dysplasia(SOD) which affected her Optic Nerves - She is Blind with Panhypopititurism and Agenasis of the Corpus Callosum. She was at a school which attended since grade R up until now and stayed at the boarding school from Monday to Friday. Unfortunately Akeisha was being bullied and it had being going on for many years. Despite the school being informed numerous of times the bullying persisted and we were left with no other choice but to take her out of the school. This ongoing bullying over the years has affected Akeisha emotionally and physically on many different levels. I wish there was another school I could enroll her in but it's not that simple as there aren't many schools for the blind especially that go up until grade 12 and here were we stay the school that she attended is the only one in the Province. So my only hope is for her to finish her schooling at home but in order for her to do that she would need a specialized computer and other assistive devices which are very expensive. Akeisha would also be able to further her education and study further if she had these devices and hopefully follow her her dreams of becoming a Teacher or Radio DJ.
The following devices have been quoted to me:
HUM188 BrailleNote Touch 32 Plus 1.00 Each 71 030.00

Travel & Accommodation 2.00 Each 6 700.00 = 13 400.00 for 2 People 2 nights

All of the above devices would have such an impact on Akeisha's life. Please help me to help Akeisha make her dreams come true.
