Posted on 15th September 2016
Jakarta, 14 September 2016 – PT Tower Bersama Infrastructure Tbk (TBIG) together with its affiliation, PT Provident Agro Tbk donate 1,000 sets of Mushaf Digital Braille Qur’an to the International Digital Braille Qur’an Foundation to support its program named “One Million Donations for Digital Braille Al-Quran”.
The donation worth of Rp 1.3 billion is expected to support the provision of Digital Braille Qur’an to the blind people in Indonesia who are approximately around 3.6 million and 80% of them are Moslems.
Nowadays, the conventional Braille Qur’an cannot provide maximum functions in helping the blinds to interact with the Al-Quran easily. The main obstacle lays on the font size that cannot be made bigger. It also requires heavier papers (around 300 g) that make the volume of Braille Qur’an can be 6 times bigger than the normal medium Qur’an.
The Digital Braille Qur’an is equipped with a headset, battery charger, USB cable and digital pen that will help blind people to learn and interact with the Al-Qur’an better because they can also utilize their hearing senses.
