The Tactile Maze puzzle is ready!

The Tactile Maze puzzle is ready!

Esha, as some of you might know, has 5 revenue options:
1. Braille enabled visiting cards and stationery
2. Braille enabled greeting cards
3. Theater workshop for children and adults.
4. Accessibility Audit and Consulting
5. Tactile Maps

Of these, the first 4 are delivered by blind professionals. However, the fifth cannot be effectively delivered by them yet. Therefore, we have tied up with Navjyoti to provide this as an employment option to rural women.

Today, we conducted the training workshop to enable these women to make tactile maps for corporates, schools and residential complexes, and also to create tactile mazes for the blind. It was an awesome experience, and the tactile maze has to be seen to be believed.

We will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
