|Last 27 of June it was our pleasure to officially hand over an Index Everest-D V5 and Acoustic Hood Everest to the University of Sarajevo in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Last year’s Index Donation Program counted several contenders and the winner was University of Sarajevo. The University’s Rector, Prof. Dr. Rifat Škrijelj, received the first printed braille material from Niels van Weele, International Sales Manager of Index Braille.|
University of Sarajevo is very active in assisting students with disabilities and is now able to offer more braille materials to their visually impaired students. By means of actively promoting the use of braille at the University, it will attract more visually impaired students to study and to assist them with books and hand-outs in braille.
The donation will be important to further ensure an inclusive environment and improved support for equal opportunities for all students.
The University of Sarajevo (“Univerzitet u Sarajevu”) has 25 faculties, three Academies and five Research Institutes, and offers work to nearly 2.600 persons for approx. 27.000 students.
