The five senses traditionally ascribed to humans are vision, hearing, taste, smell and touch. A sixth “sense” could be proprioception, the perception of body position, which is important for balance and agility in movement. With the loss of sight, blind and visually impaired people heavily rely on the other five senses to get by. Learning to flex and master these sensory “muscles” makes day to day tasks a lot easier to handle.
Basic tasks such as eating can become a challenge if you do not know what has been set before you. So, does food taste the same if you have not seen it yet? Without your sense of sight, can you identify foods based upon taste only?
Well, NAVI invites you to a fun filled taste bud experience to challenge your sensory skills and experience what blind and visually impaired people go through every single day. The TasteBuds Experience will bring to your table a variety of spices/herbs, drinks, fruits and foods for you to taste and identify.
This event is geared towards creating awareness on blindness as well as raising funds to help NAVI create a safe space for other visually impaired persons to meet, grow and work.
Cost per participant: Kshs 200.00
