Perkins International has worked with local partners throughout Africa since the early 1990s to create quality educational opportunities for children and young adults who are blind, deafblind and visually impaired with additional disabilities.

Perkins' work in Africa is particularly unique because of the Institutional Development Program (IDP). The IDP builds and strengthens organizations of and for the blind and is led by individuals with blindness and low vision. This program embodies Perkins' philosophy of supporting individuals, organizations and communities in realizing their full potential.
