From kindergarten to university, Lanjinling brings the feeling and idea of inclusion and diversity to students of all ages. Through direct contact and personal experience, children and teenagers can begin to understand the visually impaired individuals' situation, understand what they can and can't do, and try to think about how to make impossible possible, how to participate in social accessibility.
