Perkins International has been working in the Middle East and North Africa since 2010. We serve as a regional resource for organizations working to increase educational and life opportunities for children who are blind or visually impaired and have multiple disabilities.

Perkins has impacted the lives of hundreds of children and their families in the region through training and technical assistance to universities, schools and other organizations. Our partnerships continue to grow in new and exciting ways, including the recent launch of WonderBaby.org in Arabic.
