More than six million children worldwide are blind with multiple disabilities.
Without educators to help them learn, many face a life of isolation and untapped potential. For 100 years, the Perkins International Educational Leadership Program has trained educators in 90 countries to help children with multiple disabilities learn and thrive. Today, all around the world, our graduates are doing just that—even in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.
Help us ensure Perkins-trained leaders will always be there when children need them most. Support the Educational Leadership Program and become a part of #ThePerkinsEffect.
