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, we are still the
only non-governmental boarding institution
solely committed to rehabilitating those who
got blind at some a point later in life.

Our 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.
Till date, we have positively impacted the
lives of about 2500 visually impaired
Nigerians, raising champions and we are
extremely delighted to introduce to you, our
annual celebration event titled, May Ball on
28th May, 2016 at the MUSON Center. The

providing qualitative trainings and
inclusive education for our trainees;

benevolence, telling the positive effects of
your social responsibility in the lives of
our trainees;

Usually, we have various entertaining
activities to keep guests enthralled, while
also celebrating our sponsors. This year, our
theme is the “Masked May Ball” with
activities such as a fashion show (using
Adire materials and crafts done by the
students), a celebrity auction (where
celebrities are auctioned off, for the highest
bidder to win a blind dinner date for two with
the celebrity) and a raffle draw to win the
most exotic gifts.
