World Blind Union (WBU)

World Blind Union logo

The World Blind Union (WBU) is the internationally recognized organization, representing the 285 million blind and partially sighted persons in 190 member countries. We are the voice of the blind, speaking to governments and international bodies on issues concerning blindness and low vision in conjunction with our members.

WBU brings together all the major national and international organizations of blind persons and those organizations providing services to people with low vision to work on the issues affecting the quality of life for blind people. Globally, we are divided into six regions, with each region having its own President and volunteer executive team to assist the needs of the local members. A listing of our global members and regional offices can be accessed in the 'Contact Us​' section at WBU's website.

If you are with an organization that serves blind or partially sighted people in your country and you wish to join the WBU, please review the membership categories, criteria and application process listed at WBU's website.

Even if you are not a member but are just a curious or concerned citizen, you can learn more a​bout our work and committees through WBU's website.
