In the second quarter of 2022, Al Fitrah Foundation added more braille Islamic and reference books to its modest library. The shelves are categorised according to language – English, Arabic and Bahasa Melayu.
This slow but steady process has led to the increase of various interesting titles.
The centre is open to all visually impaired brothers and sisters, young and old, who would like to increase their knowledge about Islam.
There is a small section reserved for children. More storybooks are currently being added to this section.
Al Fitrah Foundation welcomes volunteers.
1. read to the editorial team while they transcribe and/or type the content into Word. Subsequently, the team would transfer it into braille.
2. bring your laptop to do the typing work at the centre, or
collect the book(s) and do the typing remotely.
Once you complete the task and proofread the document(s), you would need to email the Word document(s) and return the book(s) to the library.
