In the Kenyan context, sports for visually impaired persons has been so far characterised in the field of athletics by the excellent performance of athletes such as Abraham Tarbei who attained an unparalleled record by winning 3 gold medals, in the 2008 and 2012 Paralympics in the men’s 1500 meters and the men’s 5,000 meters respectively.
WHAT WE DO
We allow for the discovery, development, nurturing and application of sporting abilities of persons with visual impairment at national, regional and continental levels
HOW WE DO IT
We carry out a basic empowerment program, giving canes to the Visually Impaired in Kenya while preaching the message that disability is a different normalcy throughout institutions of learning for the Visually Impaired
We welcome all like-minded entities of goodwill to assist us in this great endeavour, in order to bring about the empowerment that all human beings rightfully deserve; despite religious conviction, ethnicity, or any other affiliation
