Dear IBSA Members and Supporters,

On this International Day of Persons with Disabilities, IBSA, the International Blind Sports Federation, proudly reaffirms its commitment to inclusivity in sports.

IBSA encourages the world to embrace adaptive sports, providing opportunities for individuals with visual impairments to showcase their talents and determination. Inclusivity in sports is not just a goal for IBSA; it’s a global call to empower individuals of all abilities.

IBSA will lead reforms to enhance accessibility, expand opportunities, and promote inclusivity in blind sports worldwide. Our goal is to set new standards, ensuring that individuals with visual impairments can thrive and excel in the world of sports.
