Lighthouse Guild has received a $10,000 gift from Bausch Foundation to purchase new computers to train people with vision loss for work, school and daily living. The computers will be used at Lighthouse Guild’s Assistive Technology Training Center in Manhattan.
Assistive technology includes devices, software or equipment that helps people work around their challenges to learn, communicate and function. The Assistive Technology Training Center at Lighthouse Guild is specifically designed for people with vision loss.
“Vision impairment does not need to be a barrier to success,” Calvin W. Roberts, MD, President & CEO of Lighthouse Guild, said in a company news release. “We thank Bausch Foundation for their generous gift that will allow us to expand our ability to help people with vision loss use the latest technology to achieve their goals and lead full and productive lives.”
“We are pleased to support Lighthouse Guild as part of our philanthropic efforts to advance global health and make a meaningful difference in people’s lives, including those impacted by vision impairment,” said Scott Hirsch, President of the Bausch Foundation.
