About the organization

The parent organization, “National Association for the Blind” (India), was founded in Mumbai in 1952 and is the country’s largest organization serving the blind. The NAB’s Delhi State Branch was established in 1979 in New Delhi’s R K Puram. The National Association for the Blind, Delhi, is a non-profit organization registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1860 on April 19, 1979, and has operated out of its current location in R K Puram since 1986. 

NAB Delhi has been serving children and adults with visual impairments from all parts of the country for more than four decades now. It has organized a variety of residential and non-residential programs for children with visual impairments and additional disabilities. The branch began with a humble start in 1986 with primary-level education, a hostel, and an administration/finance section. A total of 120 people make up NAB Delhi’s team now, and they are all dedicated to the cause we support. NAB Delhi’s main goal is to enable visually impaired children to live self-sufficient, dignified, and independent lives.



To see the visually impaired population of India as empowered and well-informed individuals working towards personal growth and development thereby leading life to its optimum potential



To empower persons with Visual Impairment with education and training to attain     self-sufficiency through employment/self-employment thus,

Integrating them with dignity in mainstream society.

To prevent blindness as much as possible.



Integrated education is of paramount importance for the inclusive growth of blind children. NAB aims to provide the similar educational environment and learning experiences to them that their sighted counterparts enjoy. This teaching model proposes visually impaired and sighted children to study and play together in a regular classroom. Integrated education brings the blind and the sighted children close to each other from an early age, making them aware of each other’s unique needs, potentials, and strengths, creating better understanding and acceptance. NAB plays a pivotal role in bringing them on the same platform.
