The White C(r)ane Project

AYUDH Kenya – Youth wing of NGO –  Embracing the World Kenya (an affiliation of M. A. Math Charitable Trust Kenya) has donated free white canes to Visually Impaired beneficiaries since 2013, as part of the WHITE C(R)ANE initiative in Kenya. With more than 3000 white canes already distributed through various donations, a further 25,000+ white canes were allocated for the beneficiaries at the onset of the pandemic.
The White Cane is a universal symbol of independence for blind persons, enabling them to navigate their way in confidence, safety and dignity. Through our project, we have chosen the symbol of a white crane, epitomizing a sense of hope and freedom that a cane can bring to the blind, like wings of a bird.
See Through my World is the official theme song of the White C(r)ane Project.  
The song showcases the various talents that differently-abled individuals are equipped with, and are often overlooked due to their disability. 
Tanya Martin – Goodwill Ambassador, Embracing the World Kenya, composed and collaborated this song with an all-blind band to highlight the need to empower the visually impaired through arts and culture.
