Casa Hogar Niñas Ciegas

Home for Blind Girls

Casa Hogar Niñas Ciegas was founded as a home for blind girls in 1956 by the Dominica St. Thomas Aquinas congregation. The objective of the school is to support blind and visually impaired children. The majority of these girls come from small states such as Veracruz, Guerrero and Oaxaca. They receive education and rehabilitation at the National Institute of the Blind and as many are from low-income families and cannot afford to travel, the home is there to offer shelter and support. The home continues to run by selling clothes, food and through other fundraising activities.
