Helping The Community Through Inclusion
Seeing Hands Rwanda knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. We believe people with visual impairments should be given equal rights as people with no disabilities.
Seeing Hands Rwanda is my absolute favorite place to get a massage in Kigali, and maybe even the world! The massage therapists at Seeing Hands provide incredible massages through their various techniques and extra ability to sense tightness in the body.

Assistive technology promotes greater independence by enabling people to perform tasks they were formerly unable to accomplish, or had great difficulty accomplishing, by providing enhancements to, or changing methods of interacting with, the technology needed to accomplish such tasks.
