The mission of White Cane Day is to educate the world about blindness and how the blind and visually impaired can live and work independently while giving back to their communities, to celebrate the abilities and successes achieved by blind people in a sighted world and to honor the many contributions being made by the blind and visually impaired.

Our White Cane day held on Saturday 12th August, 2017 was a blast… we had too much fun. Council members were in attendance and the wife of Lagos State Governor was ably represented. The Federal Nigeria Society for the Blind was proudly supported by members of Red Carpet TV, Cycology and B.A.D GANG. Our students got a feel of some of the bikes belonging to the B.A.D GANG. Cathem Eye Hospital also gave free eye tests. Tantalizers supplied packs of chops, Nero Asibelua Foundation donated T-shirts, hand towel and packs of bottle water. Granvills Insurance Brokers donated packs of bottle water as usual Indomie represented with cooked noodles. It was truly a fun filled day….

We say a big thank you to the LASTMA team, MIC Band, LASAMBUS, Lagos Ministry of Information, Nigeria Police Force and Nigerian Armed Forces Resettlement Centre.
