St. Nicholas’ Home was the first in Malaysia to start computer education for the blind and visually impaired on the 1st of March 1993. This computer course was a major success which resulted in an official IT laboratory in 2005.
The objectives of this course are to give the blind and visually impaired (BVIs) people the necessary computing skills and to increase the BVIs’ confidence and expertise in the IT field. We believe that by mastering IT, our trainees will be able to improve their academic performances, employment opportunities and career prospects in our increasingly IT driven world.
Most importantly, we hope that our trainees will leverage on their IT knowledge, thus become a successful and positive contributor to our society and nation.
The ICT courses and workshops offered at St. Nicholas’ Home are as follows:
