Overview

  • Organization TypeService Providers
Resources for the Blind began as a personal project of Dr. Arthur Lown to produce a braille version of the Filipino Bible. Blind since childhood, Dr. Lown retired as Director of the Atlanta Public Schools Services for Blind Students in 1970 and moved from the United States to the Philippines to serve as the administrator of the Manila branch of the Summer Institute of Linguistics. In 1980, three blind Filipino pastors, learning about Dr. Lown's interest in Bible translation, visited him to request his help in transcribing the Filipino Bible into braille. Thus began the first project of what would become Resources for the Blind. Vision Their Vision is for all Filipinos who are visually impaired to be able to reach the fullest potential in life and service that God has for them. Mission To design and implement programs that will enable those with visual impairment to understand and reach their God-given potential in life and services.
