Who We Are
Pontes is an association which was founded in November 2006 by a group of enthusiastic, visually impaired young people who wanted to make a difference in society, in the lives of both visually impaired and sighted people. We called it ‘Pontes’ because our objective is to build ‘bridges’ between people with visual impairment, who are often isolated and little involved in their communities, and the sighted people who don’t have too many chances to get acquainted with them and regard them, not as a separate, minority group, who constantly needs help, but as equal citizens.
