Mission Statement

The ultimate purpose of the NFB of Hawai`i is the complete integration of the blind into society on a basis of equality.  This objective involves the removal of legal, economic and social discriminations; the education of the public to new concepts concerning blindness; and the achievement by all blind people of the right to exercise to the fullest their individual talents and capacities.  It means the right of the blind to work along with their sighted neighbors in the professions, common callings, skilled trades, and regular occupations.
