Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sighted

The main purpose of NABP's engagement in developing countries is to: Enable blind and partially- sighted people to fight for their rights by strengthening organisations of the blind and support education and rehabilitation programmes. NABP contributes towards the global fight against blindness by supporting eye health and prevention of blindness programmes. We want to achieve this by working in the following four areas: 1. Strengthen existing and/or new organisations of the blind and partially sighted by emphasizing organisation building programmes. 2. Improve the lives of the blind and partially sighted through rehabilitation, education, vocational training and income generating programmes. 3. Promote and strengthen education and learning for blind and youth. 4. Combat blindness by initiating eye health treatment, prevention of blindness programmes and training of local health personnel eye health.
