Giving Hope to the Blind

Message from KSB Director

KSB golf invite card

  1. Background

    Kenya Society for the Blind (KSB) started operations on the 18th of October 1956. Its key mandate were:

    • To promote the welfare, education, training and employment of the blind
    • Elimination of preventable blindness

    KSB was formed through an Act of Parliament but this does not give it the ability to draw funds from the exchequer. KSB has always relied on donations from well-wishers and partners to achieve its mandate; which is to give hope to the blind.

    Dr. K. I. Laibuta, an alumnus of KSB, is spearheading a campaign aimed at raising money for Kenya Society for the Blind. He is going to play 1,000 holes (about 56 rounds) of golf in what is dubbed “1,000 Holes Blind Golf Challenge” between 2nd April and 29th July. His final round shall be played at the picturesque Limuru Country Club on the 29th of July.


     

    Dr. Laibuta is running with this campaign and is sharing his life, success and challenges to create the desired influence and impact and is appealing for all persons of goodwill to stand up and support him ... support us. I am appealing to all of you to rally behind Dr. Laibuta.
