OUR STORY

Starting small, the American Friends of the Blind in Greece first brought visually impaired children to the United States to study agricultural methods so they would have essential, in-demand skills upon their return to Greece to facilitate the ability to earn a living on their own.  Eventually our organization established a small school for the blind outside of Athens.  Over the years, our contributions in conjunction with other charitable donations led to the creation of The Lighthouse for the Blind in Greece. For 75 years, the American Friends of the Blind in Greece has contributed to the blind in Greece to improve their quality of life.
