Future Vision Home, Iloilo City was conceived by Josephine Esperanza L. Malan from her experienced as a volunteer of FVSBI for six years and was motivated by her blind nephew who experienced bullying and discrimination while studying in Grade four at the age of nine but stopped because of this. For eleven years he stayed at home in seclusion with an unhappy life, and as well inspired by the founder of FVSBI to make a difference for the life of the blind persons. Because of the intervention of FVSBI he is now a successful and empowered blind youth which inspired to replicate the project in her hometown to make a difference in the life of blind persons.
The objectives of FVSBI is to empower its blind beneficiaries to access inclusive education, to navigate independently, and a contributor to society. To access inclusive education, they will undergo communication skills through braille literacy, orientation and mobility skills training for them to navigate safely around, and simple living skills such grooming, toileting, taking their own personal needs and preparing simple meals.
This project will be replicated to Iloilo City to address the needs of blind persons facing in their struggles to access inclusive education and societal discrimination.
