Braille Without Borders

Braille Without Borders is an international development organisation which aims to create training programs and print Braille books for blind and visually impaired people in Tibet and across the world. They also facilitate the set-up of other projects and schools for those with visual impairment. BWB seeks to instil independence, teach workplace skills and help blind and partially sighted students master professional training and embark on a career to create a better future for themselves.

How do we support Braille Without Borders?

  • We’re really passionate about giving something back to the destinations and communities that we work with. That’s why £5 of the value of every Tibet booking will always be contributed to our local project; Braille Without Borders. Of course, if you’d like to donate more, that’s no problem! Just let us know.
  • Oh, and we also do a little fundraising ourselves throughout the year, too! You can read more about this on our blog.
