About Us

Welcome to the web site of the National Council for the Blind, Malaysia, (NCBM)

NCBM was formed and registered in 1986 to bring together five organisations to work as partners in providing more efficient and quality services to help blind people to be useful citizens. Our mission as a national co-ordinating body is to assist Member Organisations in developing services so that blind people, no matter where they live in the country, may enjoy equal opportunity in receiving education, rehabilitation and employment services. To reach this long-term objective NCBM will work with the Government and groups with similar aims.

In carrying out our role as a national body, NCBM provides a platform for representatives from around the country to meet regularly to discuss all aspects of work – education, employment, blindness prevention, advocacy etc. Where possible and necessary, NCBM will give financial assistance for implementing projects and the sponsoring of personnel to attend training and skills as well as to upgrade of courses.
