advancement of children with visual
impairments--whether blind, partially sighted, or
having multiple disabilities including visual

blind/visually impaired adults.
To function as an integral part of the National
Federation of the Blind in its ongoing effort to
eliminate discrimination and prejudice against
the blind/visually impaired and to achieve for
the blind/visually impaired security, equality, and opportunity.
GOPBC works together with the National Federation
of the Blind of Georgia affiliate and the
National Organization of Parents of Blind
Children to provide yearly seminars focusing on
education of our blind/visually impaired
