As we wave goodbye to 2023 and turn our sights to the future, FBC is getting ready to do even more. Our goal is to create a world where vision loss is not a barrier, and we will be working to realize that vision. Through education, advocacy, and empowerment, we want to show the world what our students are capable of. Here are 3 New year’s resolutions for Foundation for Blind Children in 2024.

Resolution 1: Promoting Accessible Education

At FBC, we aim to give our students the training, tools, and confidence they need to be independent. From our infants to our senior clients, the learning never ends. Our students need to learn different ways of doing things, but we believe there is always a way. Our goal for 2024 is to reach even more people across Arizona, to make sure nobody is slipping threw the cracks.

Resolution 2: Fostering Inclusive Recreation

For our students, the learning doesn’t end in the classroom. Everything is a potential learning opportunity, and when a lesson can be found in a game or activity, that’s all the better. Our SHARP Program gives kids the opportunity to have fun while trying new things.

From riding horses and skiing to baking cookies, SHARP challenges our kids to expand their horizons, which allows them to build their confidence.

Additionally, this year FBC will be hosting our first ever Adaptive Sports Expo! Details on this amazing event will be coming soon and will be found on our Events Page.

Resolution 3: Raising Our Voices

Building a more inclusive world requires collective action. In 2024, let’s pledge to amplify our advocacy efforts for the visually impaired. By spreading awareness in our communities, each of us has the power to contribute to a more accessible and understanding society. We love showing the world what our students can do, and we will continue that in the new year.

As we step into the new year, let’s follow these resolutions to make sure FBC continues to be a resource for the blind and visually impaired community. Together, let’s make 2024 a year of empowerment, inclusivity, and hope.
