Bright Eyes continues to emphasize the importance of re-education and awareness of the social and educational assumptions made against visually impaired young learners and their possible abilities. Each year; Bright Eyes dedicates a considerable amount of time and effort to projects aimed at raising awareness about the educational needs of visually impaired children and their perfect capabilities at achieving mainstream objectives when their foundational and educational support requirements are met and nurtured. Many incorrect assumptions exist about the capabilities, or lack thereof, of visually impaired children and Bright Eyes continually and passionately works to address these. Awareness and re-education projects form a large part of our work throughout the year; gaining momentum and recognition from the community, general public, and state organizations.
