Two thirds of them will go on to live life on or below the poverty line, having left school ill equipped to work and will live a life marred by unemployment and loneliness.

As well as offering and promoting emotional support to children and their families, we're increasingly looking at ways in which technology can positively influence the life chances of a vision impaired child.

It is set to become the global benchmark for using mobile devices for audio navigation.

Its quite a coup for our Youth Forum to have been involved in the foundations of this global revolution, which will have such an impact on their lives, and the lives of their peers.

In the same way that Wayfindr aims to take the stress out of travel, we want to see existing and emerging technologies giving vision impaired children a profoundly improved experience at school.

We will continue in our quest to collaborate with the best innovators and designers that want to help us translate ideas into better futures for young vision impaired people.
