“Retype for Brighter Literacy 3050” is a collaboration with Mitra Netra Foundation to convert all the retyped files to be converted into e-publication sound version and be uploaded at Mitra Netra digital library which can be accessed by blind friends throughout Indonesia. More than 300 people, both Indonesian-general public and alumni inside and outside the country had extended their hands to help this programme as volunteer. With that, we are able to contribute to enrich the Mitra Netra digital library with 9 new renowned books. .
