June Waugh is a teacher at the California School for the Blind and on the board of the World Blind Union. She is an amazing advocate for the rights of children and adults that are blind or visually impaired. June presented ICEVI’s in partnership with The World Blind Union:

A Global Campaign on Education for All Children with Visual Impairment

The Education for All Children with Visual Impairment (EFA-VI) is a global campaign and program of the International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment (ICEVI) acting in partnership with the World Blind Union (WBU) to ensure that all girls and boys with blindness and low vision enjoy the right to education. The Campaign, launched on July 16, 2006 will focus on children in the developing world where currently it is estimated that less than ten-percent have access to education.
