Mais les yeux sont aveugles. Il faut chercher avec le cœur.
But the eyes are blind. One must look with the heart.
- The Little Prince
As writers who aim to produce quality local literature with strong Singapore flavour, Seow Ser and Hidayah also wish at the same time, to promote Singapore as a socially inclusive society. To promote reading in kids, we strongly believe we should include all kids - whether sighted or not.
We have donated complimentary copies to Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped (SAVH) and Lighthouse School (for blind kids). If you know of any visually impaired friends, relatives or co-workers who may be interested to purchase a copy of The Mango Tree (Braille volume), or you simply wish to show support for our ‘Writing with a Heart’ initiative, please contact us. All proceeds go only as far as defraying production costs (at below break-even amount) of the Braille books.
