The rehabilitation cycle carried out in CAIPAC includes different therapies in order to boost self-esteem and empower blind people in order to gain confidence to do daily life activities, have a sense of orientation and move around on their own, and learn how to read and write with the Braille system. Residents can learn a handcraft in one of the workshops: pottery, massage-therapy, carpentry, and music. This new know-how helps them to have a source of income to achieve their total independence within society. While living in the centre, residents are also encourage to participate in computer lessons, sports activities, and recreational trips.
