Visually Impaired Preschool Services
228
Visually Impaired Preschool Services (VIPS) empowers families by providing educational excellence to young children with visual impairments in order to build a strong foundation for reaching their highest potential.

Visually Impaired Preschool Services (VIPS) is here for your child and your entire family. VIPS is the only agency in Kentucky or Indiana that provides early intervention and educational services to children who are blind and visually impaired from birth to age 5. VIPS also provides strong support systems for parents, siblings, grandparents and the whole family.

VIPS believes that children with visual impairments are children first and need the same types of experiences as other children. They need to play with friends, swing on swings and go to new places. However, these children have to gather information about the world in different ways. Certified teachers from VIPS who specialize in early childhood education can show these children how to use their remaining vision and other senses to learn about their world. Parents and caregivers also learn about their child’s diagnosis, are provided with tools for teaching at home and gain a better understanding on how to advocate for their child.

Waza Alliance for Quality Education
337

The WAZA ALLIANCE FOR QUALITY EDUCATION is a 501c(3) public charity, not-for-profit, non-governmental, non-sectarian organization. The organization is based in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. It was established in 2007 by a group of interested individuals, including Faustin Ntala, a professional educator who is a native of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Visualize yourself living on an annual income of $360. Would you send your child to school if it cost $25 a month? This is the question millions of parents in the Democratic Republic of Congo face. As a result of extreme poverty in the DRC, only one out of three adult individuals can read. A lack of quality education in the DRC is the underlying issue Waza exists to address!
