And the Winner Was...

The International Low Vision song contest took place, with great success, on friday 21st of May. The first music competition created exclusively for people with visual impairment was organised by the German Federation of the Blind and Partially Sighted (DBSV) together with VIEWS International. Seventeen countries all around Europe were represented and we could not have been happier with the result. From Germany’s jazzy sound to Cyprus’ classical touch and to the UK’s spoken poetry, this competition was a celebration of diversity and unity.

Irid and Jocelyn: the adventure continues

Hello Everybody,

It’s Irid from Views and I am here again to talk about our Volunteering experience here in Liege.

This October started very well. We finally could go out and have our first leisure experiences.
First of all, I had the opportunity to meet the staff of La Baraka association and talk about some initiatives I would like to propose to teenagers in order to sensitize them on visual impairments. You will have more details as soon as the activities will be prepared, so stay tuned!

Disability Assessment Rights and Inclusion

Bureaucracy is a constant issue for many people, especially for disabled persons. The assessment of disability is still unclear and very often incorrect. In order to find a solution to these problems, European Disability Forum (EDF) organized a webinar on 8th May, bringing together various experts in this field.

Internship- Manon experience

Hello everyone, firstly I would like to briefly present myself: my name is Manon Vallot and I study pedagogy in Liège. Since January I've been doing an internship at VIEWS International in Liege.

My internship was to support the European Solidarity Corps volunteers hosted by VIEWS. Specifically, I was helping Roxana with her work at IRHOV school and Kuba with his activities at La Baraka. Except these, we had additional activities as well. Namely, we have been cooking together and visiting various places and events in Liege.
