Founded in 1917, the French Federation of the Blind and Visually Impaired (its acronym is “FAF”) has the main goal of improving the moral, intellectual and social level of all the blind people in France and abroad. (Article I of its constitution).

The French Federation of the Blind and Visually Impaired fights to maintain the rights of all the visually impaired people with no exception. The FAF is composed of 44 member associations spread all over the metropolitan territory and overseas.

In September 2009 FAF created a vocational training center “FAF ACCESS FORMATION” aimed mainly at training the future Orientation and Mobility instructors (OM) and Autonomy in Daily Life Instructors (ADL), which main task is to give to blind and visually impaired persons the necessary skills that will help them to be autonomous in their daily life.
