There is an enormous amount of knowledge within Visio about working with people with a visual impairment. This knowledge is also great for use in other parts of the world. At the same time there is a lot of knowledge and experience over there that we, in turn, can benefit from in the Netherlands.

And that is why Visio International exists: to share, inspire, work together and to grow as an organisation. To ensure that we as Visio have maximum impact. And to make sure that people with a visual impairment, no matter where in the world, can participate in life.
