HOW BRAILLE SCRIPTURES HELP PEOPLE WITH VISUAL DISABILITIES
“Blind people often tell me that having the Scriptures in Braille brings them dignity. They become active members of the church, feel included in society and can read for themselves just how much God loves and values them,” says Emmanuel Turinawe, Project Coordinator for People with Visual Disabilities at the Bible Society of Uganda.

Help bring life and light through Braille Scriptures to people with visual disabilities


Around the world, there are about 285 million people with visual disabilities. Most of them live in developing countries where resources to meet their needs – including Bibles that would help them through their spiritual and emotional struggles – are not readily available. This often results in loss of dignity and loss of hope for a better future.

The availability of Bibles and Scripture portions in Braille is changing that trend in Argentina, Canada, Ghana and Uganda where Bible Societies are working hard to provide equal opportunity for people with visual disabilities to engage with the Scriptures. But there are challenges: producing Braille Scriptures is very expensive. For example, a Braille Bible costs around $700! And in many places, Braille Bibles are not available in the local language. To date, the full Braille Bible is available in 40 languages only.

With your gift today, you can help Bible Societies in Argentina, Canada, Ghana and Uganda make God’s Word available in Braille. Here’s what your support can do:

• $30 will provide 6 Braille Scripture portions on themes such as loneliness, healing, love, etc.

• $60 will produce 12 copies of the “I am Somebody” booklet in Braille.

• $700 can provide one complete Bible in Braille.


For those who have visual disabilities, receiving the Bible in Braille is a dream come true – an answered prayer. Thank you for your consideration of this very important ministry.
