Prezentation of publication

On 26th February 2015, we held a presentation of the publication "The white cane - when possible becomes real." This publication is a final summary of the project "Development of a mobile support service for blind persons in Croatia" which we implemented over the past 18 months in five counties in Croatia: Brod-Posavina, Sisak, Karlovac, Split-Dalmatia and Dubrovnik-Neretva County.

The publication covers various segments of the project, putting emphasis on education for O&M instructors, working with clients in their local communities, as well as changes in the community and the experiences that have emerged during the implementation of project activities, which include all stakeholders of the project: the Association, education participants / certified O&M instructors, clients and members of their families and the wider community.

We would like to express our gratitude to ZgForumu, for continuous support during this project by providing us, this time, space for the presentation of the publication. At the promotion of the publication brought various representatatives of institutions and associations were present, as well as interested citizens who support our efforts to provide a better quality of life for people with visual impairments. Special thanks also goes to all users which presence contributed to greater awareness of the need for independent movement. We believe that the publication will open many horizons and give necessary information to interested clients, and potential orientation and mobility instructors.
