Activities: The main purpose of the association is to work at furthering the rights for the blind and sight impaired in Iceland and at any matters of progress. The Association participates with European and International meetings. One of the main activities of the Association was to start Blindravinnustofan (a workshop for the blind) which is a protected place of work and the largest of its kind in the country. Both blind and sighted people are employed there. The aim of the workshop is to provide the blind with the possibility to perform miscellaneous tasks and to enable them to make a living. Training and rehabilitation is also offered to those who require it. Other activities include audio book production, a travel service, counselling and the production of a monthly newsletter.
