The Inspiration Foundation awarded 4 VisionServe Alliance members Assistive Technology Grants of up to $1,500 to help them keep their technology classrooms and remote training sessions up to date. The recipients used this funding to purchase various equipment, including braille displays, braille printers, a new laptop, phones for training, air pods, ear pods, headsets, Fusion software, tablets, handheld electronic magnifiers more.
The Inspiration Foundation (a philanthropic division of Cleanlogic, a company offering quality bath and body accessories) created these grants to help nonprofit organizations purchase assistive technology equipment. The founder of Cleanlogic was inspired by his mom, who lost her sight when she was 7, but never let it stop her. She became a passionate advocate through her hard work, helping other blind and visually impaired individuals gain employment. The Inspiration Foundation’s Board believes that successful job placement and retention depend on strong technical skills and technology augmentation of independent living skills.
