In an increasingly digitalized society, only 10% of digital interfaces are currently accessible to visually impaired people.

Despite the law passed in February 2005 to impose accessibility for all, it is still impractical for a visually impaired person to use business software or navigate certain administrative sites, essential to a citizen's life, in complete autonomy. "Equality of rights and opportunities" sounds like a chimera, the opposite of the value of inclusion.

This exclusion is all the more stigmatizing as it considerably reduces the rate of people in employment. 1 in 2 visually impaired people is currently unemployed; visual impairment being considered the biggest obstacle to hiring and/or job retention.


"The dematerialization of administrative procedures for all those people far removed from digital technology constitutes a real challenge for society, helping these citizens is an obligation." Gabriel REEB, President of c'cité -  Fédération des Aveugles Alsace Lorraine Grand Est.

c'cité positions itself as a player in a Collectif respecting the rights of everyone by considering and respecting their singularities. Thus, c'cité makes its expertise available to its beneficiaries by offering training workshops in digital tools designed by and for the blind and visually impaired public. In this way, the association aims to reduce the digital divide and give everyone back their freedom of action on their own, without any dependence on any third party.

Recent result

Since 1909, the Fédération des Aveugles Alsace Lorraine Grand Est has been working for the rights of blind and partially-sighted people, enabling them to improve their quality of life on a daily basis. It federates more than 600 members around key values: mutual aid - sharing - equality.

It has been able to adapt to a constantly changing environment and to be a vector of adapted and personalized solutions linked to all subjects of life (daily or existence).

Last year, it initiated more than thirty group workshops to help its users develop their digital skills.

The money will be used for

The funds raised will be used to finance digitally inclusive educational actions adapted to the blind and visually impaired public, in a caring environment while respecting the rhythm linked to this type of disability.


Thanks to your support, c cité will be able to train 25 people affected by visual impairment in digital tools, or help them improve their skills, for one year.

Acquiring good practices will enable participants to gain autonomy and will be a considerable lever in particular for long-term professional integration.
