Association Chiens Guides d'Aveugles Ile de France

Stand: A39


For nearly 45 years, volunteers, educators and trainers of the Association des Chiens Guides d'Aveugles d'Île-de-France have been working hand in hand to improve the autonomy and mobility of visually impaired people. The association's field of action extends over the Ile-de-France region. Discover in a few key figures our daily work! WHAT ARE THE MAIN MISSIONS OF THE GUIDE DOGS OF ÎLE-DE-FRANCE? Within the Guide Dogs of the Blind of Ile-de-France, our teams, both salaried and volunteers, work together on three main missions: - To train and give guide dogs to visually impaired people, - To ensure the training of the visually impaired person (locomotion, training course) and the follow-up of the team (master & guide dog), - Informing and sensitizing the public to the visual handicap. The education and follow-up of a guide dog are long and expensive processes: they last about 10 years and cost 25 000 euros. This amount includes care, medical examinations, the education program, follow-up and feeding. However, we want to ensure that all our guide dogs are given to visually impaired people free of charge.
