This toolkit, which is the product of a co-funded EU activity, is designed to be used by organizations of the visually impaired. It is produced and released in a special year, as 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and the Beijing Platform for Action, the outcomes of the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women.

The toolkit was developed with the purpose of mobilizing organizations of persons with visual impairments to focus greater attention on gender equality and the empowerment ofwomen. Its aim is to raise awareness regarding the importance of including gender in the decision-making process and in all other areas so as to enable change in policies, strategies and activities within an organization.
