Established in2012 as a nonprofit organisation, Start Now has pioneered many innovative services for visually impaired in the Gambia.
Start Now provides an innovative orientation, technology and rehabilitation program, and most important, a positive philosophy about blindness. Start Now has embarked on many innovative services for the visually impaired. We train visually impaired adolescent, youth and adults to learn the skills of independence in their homes, class-settings, and in their work places. Our services for the blind include preparing visually impaired high school graduates for higher education, vocational and transition programs, assistive technology training, educational support, and recreation opportunities. Start Now has provided help for many blind persons in the Gambia with diverse opportunities for success and independent living.
At our center of technology located in Brikama in the West Coast Region of the Gambia, , we work to enable access and promote technological solutions, and provide training to build self-confidence and independence of blind and partially sighted.
