Alberta Sports and Recreation Association for the Blind

Requesting $25000


We are requesting funds to develop an ongoing program that enables safe social distancing but allows for the continuation of physical activity for our community of individuals with a visual impairment. Our participants are facing an increased challenge during this pandemic, because typically the use of touch is essential in any blind sport or physical activity. Currently we are not able to provide necessary services online for our participants because our office technology is severely outdated. Our funding request is to purchase a server and modem to allow for wifi in our office so we can lead virtual exercise classes. We are also seeking to purchase two computers that are capable of hosting live video chat meetings, and updated office phones to allow conference calls with stakeholders. We are also seeking to provide the children with visual impairments in our program their own individual adapted sport equipment for sports that can be safely practiced with social distancing.
