Ministry Description
Resources for the Blind International is a Christian organization devoted to helping visually impaired individuals outside of the United States reach their God-given potentials. This is accomplished by providing the necessary medical services, training, equipment, advocacy, and support needed in order to remove the obstacles and barriers that keep visually impaired individuals from reaching their God-given potentials.

Our goal is to see blind people discipling others, particularly in lesser-developed nations. We'd like to take a model that is working in the Philippines - blind pastors reaching blind students, with braille/audio discipleship materials, and strategic summer camps - and extend that to other nations. We need to mobilize American Christians to pray and give. Your gift will help create several traveling mission displays for use by our lay donors in introducing their churches to this ministry.
For $200 you can ensure that a blind child goes to school for a year. For $300 you can sponsor a blind child to attend our annual summer camp. Please consider sponsoring a blind child today to make a life-changing difference as they are helped in practical ways and presented with the Gospel or discipled.
You can help restore the sight of a blind child affected with cataract, sponsor a blind pastor/teacher so they can hold Bible studies with blind children, or engage with special projects that help us reach those who are visually impaired.
