Project description

Project Aim

Blinfo was launched in October 2021. The team is made up of visually impaired people who are motivated to contribute to improving the quality of life of people with visual impairments. People with visual impairments in Bulgaria face various barriers on a daily basis: In the social sphere, in access to information and resources, services and rights, in the urban environment, in the opportunity to deal with seemingly elementary problems of everyday life such as shopping, work with ATM and others. As people who are facing these barriers on a daily basis, we are motivated to seek and bring about change. That's why we create solution-oriented journalism. We create materials that can be read by both the sighted and the blind, and everyone can find something for themselves.

Project Target Group

Topics and issues will be mainly related to visually impaired people, as well as people with disabilities in general. The authors of the content are young people with visual impairments, oriented towards journalism. Through their research, personal experience and presentations of current issues, they reach the target audience of the company.

Project Duration

The project "Let's be on the same page - the voice of the blind" was announced on April 9, 2021 with a special online press conference, where the idea for the platform was presented. The Blinfo news and media portal was officially launched on October 15, 2021.

Project Activities

The basis for expanding the project was the creation of the Blinfo website; Publication of materials - providing useful content; Communication campaigns announcing the start of the project.

Project Results

As the first attempt at a news platform, the content of which is created by visually impaired people, the results can be described as rather psychological. The activities give the team a sense of usefulness and responsibility to society, which can be seen in their passion for continuous development and awareness on various topics. Blinfo uses a lot of information flows and offers its audience verified information on important and current topics. The promotion of the site lays a solid foundation for future development. The team is growing and more and more articles are being published on a weekly basis.
