The "Asia Pacific Youth Summit for the Blind" is a special event co-organized by the International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment (ICEVI), and Resources for the Blind, Inc. (RBI), with sponsorship from The Nippon Foundation. Last year, we were glad to have three representatives from Vietnam attending the summit. This year, the event also takes place in Manila, Philippines from December 3 to 5, 2023, to celebrate the meaningful “International Day of Persons with Disabilities”.
This is an excellent platform for blind young people to connect with other individuals, share their passions and inspiring stories, and gain valuable insights on leadership, innovation, and social impact. By attending the summit, you will have an amazing opportunity to network with outstanding speakers and learn from their invaluable experience and advice, which can help you excel in your career path. All participants will receive a Certificate of Participation at the end of the summit.
