White Cane Project
The Audio Information Network of Colorado (AINC) takes great pride in its commitment to empowering individuals who are blind or Low Vision. As part of this mission, AINC has partnered with the Colorado Lions Clubs to provide FREE white canes to those in need. We express our deepest gratitude to the Colorado Lions Clubs for their generous support of this vital project.
Through the White Cane Project, AINC has already distributed dozens of white canes to individuals across Colorado. These canes serve as powerful tools, enhancing mobility and independence for the blind and Low Vision. Our aim is to ensure that no one faces barriers to navigation and personal freedom due to a lack of resources.
In this short video, Evan Starnes shares his insights about the misconceptions surrounding people who are blind. He emphasizes the importance of adaptive technologies, including white canes, in enabling independence and self-sufficiency. Evan expresses his excitement and gratitude for AINC’s White Cane Project, which provides individuals who are blind with the tools they need to navigate the world with confidence.
