Abstract:  This article describes the Rose Project that provides free World Book Encyclopedia articles in Braille to blind children in grades 1 -12.

Key words:  Blindness, visually impaired, Seedling Braille Books for Children, literacy, education

We are very pleased to announce that Seedlings' Rose Project received a grant from Delta Kappa Gamma which will allow us to continue to provide Free World Book Encyclopedia articles in braille to blind children grades 1-12.

Students from across the United States contact Seedlings via the web, by telephone or email and provide the subject(s) or topic(s) of interest for which they would like information. A staff member produces the articles and sends them to the student’s home or school, via UPS, free-of-charge within five business days.

Every year we have requests from new students and/or students that have recently been diagnosed as visually impaired. The Rose Project allows us to continue to fill a need in their lives so they can continue to grow and learn and become independent and successful individuals.

Seedlings Braille Books for Children is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization based in Livonia dedicated to increasing the opportunity for literacy by providing high quality children’s literature in braille. For more information on the Rose Project, or to request an article, please visit http://www.seedlings.org/rose.php or contact us at (800) 777-8552.
