We support chapter 1.4
1.4: By 2030, ensure that all men and women, in particular the poor and the vulnerable, have equal rights to economic resources, as well as access to basic services, ownership and control over land and other forms of property, inheritance, natural resources, appropriate new technology and financial services, including microfinance.
Visually and hearing impaired people are directly affected due to their disability. They can rarely avoid their disability or can rarely receive aids that can alleviate the disability. The actual potential of the person cannot develop. The disabled person, especially if she/he is blind, is typically unable to move independently or perform any activity that corresponds to the person’s potential in poorly developed areas of the world. Often this person lives on the margins of society.
Our myE&E product “sense” is a 100% self-developed, inexpensive, robust, smart and wearable device that can significantly improve the navigation and orientation ability of blind people. These improvements can be achieved especially with the white cane.
Organizations that help blind people receive these devices particularly cheaply than on-site service providers and are subject to a maximum price commitment that must be below our specified price. At the same time, we try to find sponsors who support devices in particularly poor areas of the world.
We offer a version of the device with a photovoltaic supply, which allows the device to be supplied in areas without energy support.
