Envision Conference 2008
Dates: 09/04/2008 – 09/07/2008

Date(s): September 5 – 6, 2008

Location: Westin Riverwalk Hotel, San Antonio, TX, USA

The Envision Conference is a multi-disciplinary low vision rehabilitation and research conference. Every year, hundreds of professionals in the low vision rehabilitation field come together to advance the state of the art in low vision rehabilitation. Attendees earn continuing education units, learn new skills, network and share current research in the field.

The conference will feature four tracks of continuing education, workshops, research and poster presentations. The exhibit hall will feature vendors from all over the country displaying the latest in technology and services in vision rehabilitation as well as book publishers and optometric suppliers.

Proposals for presentations are being accepted through April 30, 2008. Speakers will receive reimbursement for registration, hotel, and travel costs.

Past conferences have had participants from six countries; conference organizers hope that participants from Latin America will find it easier to travel to this year’s location.

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
