Since IBSA was founded in Paris in 1981, we have been in a constant process of evolution to adapt to the ever-changing world of sports for the blind.
IBSA is registered as a non-profit making, public interest body in Spain, and we are full members of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), where we are the legitimate representatives of sport for the blind.
Our status allows us to provide our movement with a unique identity in order to further develop and promote sports for the blind and visually impaired.
We are also committed to providing assistance to our national member organisations in all five continents, especially those organisations in developing countries which have to date been unable to spread the word about blind sports sufficiently within their countries and do not have an established school sports programme for the blind, local and national competition programme, etc.
