Blindness is one of the most challenging disabilities to deal with. Not being able to see your surroundings can make life very difficult for a person whether they were born without sight or lost it later in life.

The Federal Nigeria Society for the Blind is a non-profit organisation established for the rehabilitation and training of adults and adolescents living with vision impairment in Nigeria. Established in 1955, This is still the only non-governmental boarding institution solely committed to rehabilitating those who are blind after being sighted.

The main aim is to restore lost hope, ignite confidence and raise champions who can live productively, independently and contribute to the socio-economic growth of society. We are funded by philanthropic donations. We equip students to learn Braille, mobility skills, computer skills and vocational skills such as basket weaving, tie-dye, music and shoe-making and prepare students for higher learning in university.

To date, they have positively impacted the lives of about 2500 visually impaired Nigerians, raising champions.
