In collaboration with the EIFL-FOSS programme, they formed a partnership with UZ’s Disability Resource Centre (DRC) to implement real solutions resulting in increased access to online resources for the UZ’s students with disabilities. Their success was recognized by the Zimbabwe Ministry of Public Affairs, and the project has been nominated for a UN award."

Zimbabwe is improving it's educational resources for the visually impared. They are installing magnifying programs as well as programs that read text aloud into library computers and individual's laptops in order to allow those with poor eyesight access to online resources. They have also been extending these programs beyond libraries in order to reach more people. This will help their economy in the long  run by giving more people access to information and an education.
