DETAILED GIVING OPTIONS

Thriving begins with YOU - collage of successful blind people

We know first hand that blindness is not a barrier to success. We are a global community that is changing how the world sees blindness.

A 2021 study by Retina International found that in the United States:

Father teaching his son how to read braile
  • $31.7 billion is the socio-economic burden of blindness

  • 2/3 of that cost is associated with wellbeing costs

  • $4.056 billion is related to unemployment

    American Printing House for the Blind reports the following:

  • 70% of the blind are unemployed

  • 27.7% are living below the poverty line

  • 70% of blind high school students drop out

  • 85% of blind college students withdrawal

At Thriving Blind Academy,
we know blindness is not the barrier to success
and it is not the cause of those statistics. 
Attitude and Access are the barriers
to people succeeding without sight.

We know what the commonalities are among the 30% of the blind that ARE succeeding in school and the workplace and living their lives of their dreams, and we use our passion and superior teaching/coaching skills to inspire and empower more blind and visually impaired people and families to do the same.

We are transforming the current culture of pity and pitiful mindset to one where there is a clear vision of possibility and success for all that are experiencing sight loss. Our expertise in guiding thousands of children and adults in adopting success principles and life skills specific to the blind will catapult this community and finally end the low achievement all have experienced for decades.

Join the journey to eliminate the burden of blindness and arm families, individuals and youth to thrive in school, the workforce, and life.
