Hanwha Promotes Accessibility and Community Through Braille

  • Hanwha Promotes Accessibility and Community Through Braille

  • Every November, Hanwha commemorates Korean Braille Day by making and distributing braille calendars for free.
  • The braille calendar is designed to help the blind independently manage their schedules and features both braille and printed text.
  • To ensure legibility, Hanwha employees manually type out each page of the calendar on a braille writer. The production is carefully overseen by braille experts to make sure every calendar is perfect.
  • Hanwha refines the calendar’s design each year, based on user feedback, to make it as convenient to use as possible.
  • 40,000 copies are made and delivered each year, making it the largest production run of braille calendars in Korea.
  • Since 2000, Hanwha has made 760,000 calendars. If stacked on top of one another, it’s enough to reach the peak of Mount Everest.
  • Through this campaign, Hanwha is bringing blind and sighted people closer together. It is the perfect example of Hanwha striving to create a culture without discrimination.
  • Going Further Together
