In Kazakhstan there are a number of programs aimed at the rehabilitation of the blind and visually impaired, but in fact the environment for the visually impaired in our country can hardly be called accessible.

As already told earlier, students under the direction of teacher of physics and mathematics department Askhat Ramankulov invented a technological robot-guide.

Representatives of the Society of the Blind, in turn, thanked the guys for their care and promised that they will actively participate in the tests of the new design, which in the future may become an “assistant” to the visually impaired. It should be noted that the training and production company employs 23 visually impaired people, they sew various products, and recently began to produce environmentally friendly paper
