Bristi is a young girl with cerebral palsy. We found her with her mum begging in the street and decided we wanted to find a way to help. One of our programming teachers, Roxsana, has made a communiation app for Bristi. With this, she can touch pictures to communicate what she needs (e.g. I am thirsty). Bristi is also able to listen to songs and stories on the device.
Bristi had previously been donated a wheelchair. Unfortunately, the wheelchair was adult sized and needs adapting. We are currently working with our engineering students to fit extra padding and straps so that Bristi can use her wheelchair. We will also make a special tablet holder so she can have the tablet in front of her when she is sitting.
