Blind from the eyes,

not from the heart


ABOUT US

OUR MISSION: EMPOWER & ENABLE THE BLIND THROUGH EDUCATION

  Helping Blind People, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, provides educational
opportunities
for blind Muslims nationwide at no cost to them.


ZABEEHULLAH FAIZ – CEO & FOUNDER

“I am only blind from the eyes, not from the heart

because I have noor of Qur’an in my heart.”

Founded by Zabeehullah Faiz, who himself is blind, Helping Blind People is
the first and only Muslim nonprofit organization serving blind students in
the United States. Located in Houston, Texas, HBP has been serving the
blind community since 2011. As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit
organization, HBP strives to make Islamic and general education available
to the blind community at no cost. Our highly qualified blind teachers use
their own experiences to nurture the spiritual, rational, and social
growth of our students.
