IHCD celebrates World Braille Day, honoring the 200th anniversary of Louis Braille's revolutionary invention. 

Recognized since 2019 and observed on January 4th, World Braille Day highlights Braille's crucial role in realizing human rights and freedoms. It is more than a writing system; it signifies literacy, independence, and empowerment.  

As we commemorate this milestone, IHCD urges for a global commitment to enhancing access to Braille literacy, technology, and services via inclusive design.
