Organizations for visually impaired people


It’s a very strong moment to step in someone else’s shoes and to understand that we are all made out of the same dough, regardless of our differences.”– a young man from the VIVACOM company.”

I really like what I observe during the Kitchen Music method. The method supports the unity of the group and makes the group smile. Music is a universal language through which everyone, be it a professional musician or an amateur, can communicate with everyone else. It is amazing how this language positively affects people when they start playing and singing together. Bread-making combined with singing is something marvelous! To sculpture something with your hands, to observe through different senses, to make bread together with another person, to trust each other…It makes a strong impression on me how people relax and open up and tell about themselves in the process.” – Katryn, a Bread in the Dark facilitator with visual impairment.”

Bread in the Dark method and type of community events represents a meeting in complete darkness (the darkness is ensured through special tick curtains and blindfolds) between visually impaired and sighted people during which they work in a team and knead bread together.

How can our methodology benefit your work:

  • Providing an opportunity for people with visual impairments to have good quality time and share their feelings
  • A therapeutical approach to psychological issues
  • Making, baking and breaking bread together as an universal symbol of building a better society together based on understanding, solidarity, dignity and respect for the others
  • Diversification of social events in which people with visual impairment can participate
  • Sharing sensitive personal stories – kneading bread with the feeling, aroma and symbolism of home and family that it creates touches people deeply and helps them easily open to others and offer mutual support
  • An alternative method of work which doesn’t need sight for sharing and caring

What problems we solve:

  • Lack of diverse social events for people with visual impairment
  • Social exclusion
  • Psychological traumas related to exclusion
  • Sense of loneliness and isolation
