The National Federation of the Blind of Idaho is a not-for-profit chapter of the NFB. The NFB believes in and advocates for recognizing and developing the full capacity of blind people. It is critical to provide opportunities for blind children to develop the skills, confidence and self-esteem that will allow them to be independent, contributing members of their communities.
This concert supports programs such as the BELL Academy. The Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning (BELL) Academy prepares blind and low vision children, ages 4 - 12 to become and grow into confident, independent blind people. The program provides Braille and non-visual skills instruction through fun, hands-on learning. In addition to Braille crafts, games, and other engaging projects, children learn vital independent living skills, interact with blind adults who serve as mentors, and enjoy field trips to practice and enhance their skills in their communities. This concert benefits the Idaho BELL program and others like it throughout the state.
