Welcome to the audio-described version of the Hawaii Association of the Blind's official print brochure. This version interprets the tri-folded brochure that goes over the philosophy, purpose, and activities members experience. This audio version lasts approximately 4 minutes which we have divided into 9 sections, as a way to improve the listening experience. Sections 4-6 cover the purpose behind the Hawaii Association of the Blind. Sections 7-8 explain how to reach out if one is interested in becoming a member or donor.
"The Hawaii Association of the Blind is a 501c3 non-profit organization, an entity that survives on the generosity of donors who share in the support of Blind and Visually Impaired people in the State of Hawaii."
