Description
The Jamaica Society for the Blind (JSB) was incorporated on May 17th, 1954. It was established with the support of the Royal Commonwealth Society for the Blind (now Sightsavers) in response to a petition made to the Queen of England with respect to the conditions affecting persons who were blind in Jamaica (at that time). The JSB is an Organisational Member of the Caribbean Council for the Blind (CCB). JSB focuses on helping blind people to adjust to their condition, lead productive lives and encourage, through public education, better eye care among the sighted. JSB programmes and services include Vision Testing, Rehabilitation, Instruction, Library, Links and Public Education.
Vision
MISSION STATEMENT: To promote the welfare, education and employment of persons who are blind or visually impaired and to prevent (avoidable) blindness in Jamaica.
