Torres Foundation for the Blind of Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, sponsored the summer camp, known as Camp Can Do, for blind youth of the Caribbean. The camp provides blind and low-vision youth with positive and motivating experiences to enhance personal growth and development through a series of workshops and activities.
