NGO Profile :
National Association for the Blind (India) (NAB), the myriad services offered by NAB (India) that are vital to the socioeconomic rehabilitation and allround development of visually challenged individuals include: prevention and cure of blindness, education, rehabilitation, vocational training, employment and self-employment opportunities, recreation and much more. NAB was successful in launching a wide range of services for the visually challenged not just in Mumbai and its adjoining areas but across the country, through a vast network of its departments and activities and its 24 State & 66 District Branches.

Some of the notable achievements and activities of NAB (India) are:-

  • In 1958 NAB started the first ever Braille production unit in India in the NGO sector. It is currently known as NAB Sir J Duggan Braille Press.
  • In the same year Integrated Education for the Blind was initiated by NAB (India) by admitting three visually challenged children in a regular school in Mumbai.
  • In 1963, Talking Book Library was launched. Now known as the NAB M. P. Shah All India Talking Book Centre, it has emerged as one of the largest sources of production and distribution of audio material – both  academic and recreational – for the visually challenged.

With the support of Reliance Foundation, under the project “Drishti”, over 10,000 Keratoplasties / corneal transplant surgeries have been conducted so far.

Leading international organizations in the field of blindness such as Helen Keller International, Sightsavers, Sense International, Vision 20-20, CBM and World Blind Union of which NAB (India) is a member, seek NAB (India)'s expertise in starting and developing programs for the visually challenged people in India.
