USAID Publishes Manual on Job-Search Strategies in Braille

On May 29, 2014, USAID’s Persons with Disabilities Internship and Employment Project, in cooperation with the Dimitar Vlahov State School for Rehabilitation of Visually Impaired Children and Youth, presented The Manual on Job Search Strategies published in Braille for blind and visually impaired people. The manual, a collaborative effort between the Project and Dimitar Vlahov School, will provide guidance to blind and visually impaired people seeking employment.
