Havana, December 27 (RHC)-- Nearly 100 blind or visually impaired young Cuban men and women from all provinces attended the First Festival organized for them by the National Association for the Blind and the Visually Impaired.
The Festival was held in the eastern city of Bayamo and was partially funded through a donation from the International NGO Handicaped International, which has supported the Cuban association for some years, ACN news agency reported on Friday.
The young delegates attended workshops discussing the Convention for the Protection of the Blind and Visually Impaired and reviewed the many opportunities they enjoy in Cuban society.
Nearly 2,900 young women and men are members of the Cuban National Association for the Blind and the Visually Impaired. On the other hand, 1,200 children are receiving special training and other benefits so that they fully integrate into Cuban society, which has been built on the basis of an inclusive and socialist project.
