“The volunteers are the enablers. I love it. I love hearing random people's voices, and I wish that I could give them a gift over the phone.”
– Aspen, blind user from the USA.
“Be My Eyes really gave me perspective and a tangible experience of why this is so important to empower the low-vision/blind community to be as independent as they possibly can be, and to do it at no cost because of awesome partners is just really an amazing thing.”
– Bryan, volunteer from the USA.
“We work to the best of everything. We try not to ask for change. But there are of course issues like we need the equipment to read print, just as sighted people need a pen.”
– Chan Yau, blind user and CEO at CarbonCare InnoLab.
