Resources for the Blind International views the world's 39M blind, not as an endless pool of need, but as a vast reservoir of courage, resilience, and untapped capability. We are a Christian organization devoted to helping visually-impaired individuals by providing services, training, equipment, advocacy, and support to remove obstacles and barriers, so that they reach their God-given potential, becoming a help to others.

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.
