The real problem of blindness is not the lack of eyesight but the lack of information that exist in the world. The purpose of the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) is two-fold:

  • To help blind persons gain self-confidence.
  • To act as a vehicle for collective self-expression for and by the blind.

By providing public education services, information and referral, advocacy, scholarships, literature and publications, protecting the civil rights of all blind people. Development and evaluation of technology for the blind. Support for parents of blind children and their families. Instrumental in legislation and policy change that effect blind people.

We strive to educate the public that blind individuals are normal people who can compete on all levels as long as the playing fields are equal.
