Sao Mai Center for the Blind (SMCB) was established in 2001, registered as a non-profit organization based in Vietnam.
We work to empower the blind people for their fully and equally participating into the society by promoting the research, development and application of assistive technology in education, employment and daily living activities.
We provide assistive products, accessible materials, technology trainings.
We also work for vocational, job training and placement.
Along the years we created a network of 26 comp labs in 23 provinces.
The Gallery menu provides information about our origin and activities.
More information about us is available in the About menu.
We have developped different software solutions, not for only blind community in Vietnam but also for other developing countries. The SM Software menu will tell you about it.
The Library menu gives access to our digital library. In our system we have about 10,000 accessible book titles. Most of them are educational books.
We have SM Blog to share posts about assistive technology for the blind.
Our activities and services are provided free of charge for visually impaired people, so we need support to operate the Center and run our activities. This is how can help.
