We’re very excited to team up with the Kilimanjaro Blind Trust to create a special edition Bradley timepiece that has a direct social impact. Each purchase of the Bradley X KBT timepiece will help blind children in East Africa read, write, and learn by either repairing a brailler device or providing a year’s worth of braille paper. We are proud to help increase access to education, creativity, independence and opportunities by fostering literacy.
Bradley x KBT
Bradley x KBT features a pure titanium case body with a smooth mirrored finish brushed onto raised hour markers. The genuine Italian leather strap features KBT’s signature orange hue, inspired by the sunset over Mount Kilimanjaro, along with ivory accented stitching. Embossed on the strap’s reverse are Eone and KBT logos, marking this special edition.
What is the Kilimanjaro Blind Trust?
The Kilimanjaro Blind Trust aims to improve the lives of blind and visually impaired children in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi and Ethiopia through projects that improve their ability to read and write through braille.
The primary component of this mission is to ensure that every blind child has a brailler to enable them to read and write. KBT helps distribute and maintain braillers across East Africa, providing training and resources to help blind children get the education they need for employment, independence and social mobility.
Here are 4 ways KBT puts this mission into action:
- Ensure that every child in East Africa has access to a Perkins Braille machine and quality teaching materials
- Build and run the infrastructure required to track and maintain all Perkins Braille machines in East Africa
- Increase access to affordable quality braille paper, brailler spare parts, and other necessary supplies
- Advocate on behalf of blind and visually impaired students from primary school through university
You can help support KBT as they close the educational gap for blind children. Shop the Bradley x KBT edition for the look and feel of a direct social impact.
