“Knock and the door shall open, seek and you shall find…”

The visually handicapped in Sri Lanka are experiencing the truth of this statement at the Sri Lanka Federation of the Visually Handicapped (SLFVH). The SLFVH was founded on 9th November 1974 by a band of dedicated and devoted visually handicapped pioneers, primarily for the purpose of meeting the needs and aspirations and improving the quality of life of the visually handicapped community. The SLFVH strives to ensure equal opportunities for the visually handicapped so that their talents and potential can be harnessed and directed towards their rehabilitation, effective participation in society and national development.

Since its inception, the SLFVH has grown in stature and scope, and today it encompasses a multitude of functions for the welfare of the visually handicapped. The bold and able leadership of the President of the organisation and the dedicated Office Bearers elected to the Federation just prior to its Silver Jubilee anniversary (in 1999) has seen it through to its present development and expanded services.
