Welcome to Ethiopian National Association of the Blind

The Ethiopian National Association of the Blind (ENAB) was established in 1960 with its major objective to advance the respect of the universal human rights, equal opportunities and full participation of blind Ethiopians.
ENAB is the first association of persons with disability in Ethiopia; it has more than 12,000 active members and 32 branch offices in 5 regions and 2 administrative cities. In its fifty five years of operation, it has been performing various activities, among which education is the one that the association is highly engaged in.
Since 1975, ENAB has been providing education services to an average of 200 blind students annually through its two boarding elementary schools located in the region of southern nations and nationalities of Ethiopia in a special place called Wolaita and in the Oromia region in a special place called Bako from Kindergarten to eighth grade.
