WE HELP THOUSANDS OF BELIZEANS THROUGH A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAMME TO PREVENT AND CURE BLINDNESS AND TO REHABILITATE PEOPLE WHO ARE BLIND.
OUR MISSION & VISION
The Belize Council for the Visually Impaired is a non-profit organization committed, through a comprehensive programme, to prevent and cure blindness, restore sight, & to rehabilitate and educate people who are blind.
BCVI was established in 1981 and in its over 20 years of existence has developed a truly comprehensive eye service. It has successfully developed a range of services that support the needs of blind and visually impaired people.
BCVI’s Comprehensive Eye Care Programme targets all aspects of visual impairment & blindness, from correcting refractive errors to integrating children who are blind into the school system.
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
We always need new friends, volunteers & supporters to help fund & operate our programmes with children & adults who are blind or visually impaired.
This is what it's like to see again after nine years.

We need more moments like this because, even though 90 million people would be blind without the sight-saving work we and others have done in the past 25 years, we need to do more to prevent avoidable blindness tripling by 2050.
