Last month, the Colombian Ministry of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) announced the completion of the Dicapta Foundation project, “Colombia Comprende.”  This project and three others were funded by the Colombian Ministry of ICT jointly with the Ministry of Culture, through the program, “Crea Digital 2014.”  See the press release at the Ministry of ICT.

We continued working on new ideas and projects to bring accessible communications to people with hearing and vision disabilities.  We had the privilege to work with long-established partners and enlarge our network with other organizations that share our passion for accessibility. The year ended with the great news of new resources to continue working on our project “Captions and Video Description: Educational Tools for Hispanic Children with Disabilities.”   This was a fruitful year!

We are thrilled to announce that Dicapta has been awarded a new grant by the US Department of Education.  This grant, sponsored by the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, provides funds for the 5-year project, “Captions and Video Description: Educational Tools for Hispanic Children with Disabilities.”
