Founded over 30 years ago by Government mandate to be the ‘umbrella’ organization responsible for all the groups working for the visually handicapped throughout the State of Israel, THE CENTER FOR THE BLIND IN ISRAEL is dedicated to its mission of improving the conditions of life in every aspect for this section of our community.

A non-governmental and registered non-profit organization, we provide a variety of services and programs to over 25,000 citizens of differing ages, backgrounds and religions and act as their sole representative in our national Government – the Knesset.

Also acting as their international representative, THE CENTER FOR THE BLIND IN ISRAEL is an official member of the European Blind Union and of the World Blind Union, allowing us to keep up with international trends and to exchange and develop ideas and projects with many other countries and to show our presence and take part in international conferences.
