The Blind School Sarajevo, is the only centre in Bosnia for children and young adults. It was extensively damaged during the civil war an was used by the Bosnian Serb army as a military position from which to snipe and shell the city. The few teaching staff left during the war managed to visit some of their blind pupils and continue a limited education. The school reopened after the war ended but conditions remain dire.
