Social Economic

To ensure social and economic independence of people with blindness, MUB has initiated various programs. On economic independence, MUB has worked tirelessly to facilitate various trainings that has seen visually impaired persons starting businesses, learning how to farm, learning various trades and most importantly ensuring that visually impaired children get good education that will more or less guarantee them either self-employment or employment in the job market. In the social arena, MUB has mainly focused at helping the visually impaired to develop enough self esteem so that they can actively participate in various capacities  in society.

MUB has also helped those that become blind while already grown up to either learn how they can return to their previous employment or trade while those who cannot return to their previous trades are taught new trades that they can use to earn their living.

Inclusive Education

 

 

In striving to increase access to education by blind learners, MUB has wholeheartedly embraced inclusive education which aims at integration learners with disabilities in normal schools. With funding from Norges Blindeforbund/The Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sighted (NABP) MUB has conducted several activities in sensitizing and training teachers on the ways on how they can effectively implement the inclusive education policy given the fact that most of teachers in normal schools did not undergo special needs education during their teacher training in college.

Health Programs

 

 

In striving to increasing a healthful life among people living with blindness, various programs have been implemented by MUB. A good number of these have been done with funding from Norges Blindeforbund/The Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sighted (NABP). MUB has also strived to help prevent preventable blindness through its eye care project. The project aims mainly offers eye screening for the general public so that those individuals with problems that could lead to blindness can be treated in time and thus prevent blindness.
