The League of Friends of the Blind (LOFOB) was established in 1933. It is a registered welfare and fundraising organisation, and registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) and Public-Benefit Organisation (PBO). LOFOB is community based and operates from the LOFOB centre in Klip Road Grassy Park. LOFOB provides a wide range of independence development services to blind and visually impaired adults and children. The three main service areas are Independence Development Services, Early Childhood Development and Wellness- Sport and Recreation.
LOFOB continues to build on our strategic partnerships to further our service offerings for the blind and partially sighted. Moving into our 78th year of service we continually strive to change what it means to be blind to ensure the independence of all blind people. LOFOB is an associate member of The World Blind Union and a member of the South African National Council for the Blind.
