What does it mean that ABVI is a social enterprise?
It means that ABVI’s non-profit aspect is augmented by businesses that generate revenue. This revenue allows us to provide services that empower people with vision loss to lead independent, fulfilling lives.
The social enterprise model has great impact, not just on the organization or the people it serves, but also on the community. Through the services we provide and the jobs we create, ABVI is empowering people to be contributing members of their community.
We currently employ over 700 people throughout our organization, including individuls who are blind or visually impaired in various roles throughout the agency.
Here is how we helped our community to see great things in 2012-2013:
