In 2009, inABLE opened Kenya's first computer lab for the visually impaired at Thika Primary School for the Blind. The computers are installed with accessibility software such as text-to-speech screen readers and screen magnifier tools for students that retain partial sight.

Our Reading Spaces

When first created under the name 'Our Reading Spaces', the mission of inABLE was to empower Africa through reading and access to information. In parallel to our primary focus on the visually impaired, we continue to advance this original mission through the construction of libraries in rural villages and communities in Africa.
