The Taha Hussein for the Visually Impaired Library, in cooperation with Hans Seidel Foundation, organizes the International White Cane Safety Day on Wednesday, 6 November 2019 at 10.00 am. This celebration comes within the cultural and enlightening role of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina towards different groups of society. 

The White Cane Safety Day aims at advocating the rights of the visually impaired in Egypt, and sheds light on the importance of the white cane and how to use it safely on a paved road. It also encourages the government and civil society to carry out their duties and roles in this respect.

This year’s celebration includes various interactive activities for blind school students and their sighted peers. These activities will take place at the BA Plaza. The celebration will also honor outstanding students in different fields.
