From as little as R125 you can help us continue the vital care we provide to the visually impaired and blind.

In order to make our much needed services and training affordable and accessible to those most in need, we – from necessity – have to rely on donations to help subsidise the immense costs carried by the Institute.

Innovation for the Blind has 3 homes where residents are cared for. No other organisation delivers this all-inclusive service to visually impaired people.
