A.N.Fa.MI.V has been founded in 1984 as the Association of the Families of Minors with visual problems. Since 2008 it has become the National Association of Visual Impaired. The Association was created with the aim to support families who have children with visual problems, in order to help them in their education and self development. Nowadays the Association supports not only the families but also young and adult blind people.
In A.N.Fa.MI.V the volunteers will be involved in different kind of services offered by the organization: • Support for the families of visually disabled people, also people with multi-disabilities (which can include mental ones), under and over 18 years of age; • “Centro Didattico Pre-Professionale” for youth and/or adults with multi-disabilities (that could be mental too). It is a laboratory where the users can practice their skills, learn new ones, and feel a part of the working society; • “Centro di Sostegno Parascolastico” where students are helped with their homework, plus any rehabilitation support is offered in order to let the young move towards an higher grade of independence; • Educazione della manualità”: domestic economy; manual work; • “Tempo Libero” (Free Time): sport activities with no competitiveness, as swimming, bicycle, ski touring, guided tours, music; • Training Activities for teachers, social workers and families: courses on special topics concerning blindness and disabilities, especially the Braille (in writing and in reading), Orienteering, • Mobility and Practical Life: • Different activities on Sundays, visits to certain cities, manual works. Each one of the hosts has a specific program for him/herself to his particular needs.
Volunteers will be hosted in a family, in a single or double room; as for the residential and the summer activities for short period of time, the accommodation will depend on the structure where those activities will be held. The accommodation in this case will be the same as the social workers and other volunteers.
