Have you ever wondered what life is like for those who are visually impaired, or stood in awe as a blind person navigates his or her way through a crowd? Crossroads is offering a fun, experiential family programme on global blindness. Guided by local visually impaired individuals , come and walk through rural fields, enter village homes, and pass through street markets, all without the use of your sight.
