Tune In The Light, A Campaign For Blind Worker

Have you ever heard about blind worker before? I’m almost sure that the first thought comin’out of your mind is a masseur; blind masseur are all around us. Well, that ain’t wrong anyway, but do you know any other skill they have?


Yeah, that's right. They have very good ears! Any other?

Hmm, hmm hmmm..

Most of you will say,

"Blind men frequently ask for our money ".

Oh come on! You can’t even call it a job. But, have you heard about blind men graduated from university

“Yeah, i heard some, what are they doing then?”

THIS will answer some of your questions. Blind men, (tuna netra, in bahasa) do have potentials! Especially in hearing ability. Also, for some people, they communicate well. I called it Verbal Potency. Beside as masseur, we only know the blinds as musicians, teachers, and beggars. In fact, they have some other competences alongside what I wrote before.

Wanna proof? Watch this!

Do you believe that they are able to use the computer well? Yes, they do! Ever see any? Nope? I have! Although this ability needs software that helps them a lot, I see another potential. If they can use the computer well (as if they can see), why don’t they have an equal chance like us? The main problem for the blinds is they usually aren’t accepted in formal field. Well, some of them become teacher. But like I told you before, it is only for their community. The fact that they are as smart as us is neglected because their inability to see. Let me tell you something: THEY CAN.

a Musician, a music arranger, both using conventional instrument, or using computer program.

a Programmer (Well, They with command ant those 1-0 bit instead image, don't them?)

a Radio Anchor

a Telephone operator or a tele-marketer

a News reader ( If they can read the braile text as fast as we read ordinary text, Why Not?)

Well, not in every work field you can put them into, but there are some kinds of job which really really benefits from their gift. I only discover some, but there are so many chances that there will be others. Who know??My final assignment is still far away from success, being effective, and well done. But why don’t WE, together, create a real one, an effective one, to make this campaign successful? Why don’t we, together with them, share experiences and give a chance to proof?

Not only in the name of humanity, but also for the power of equality.
