A Legacy of Courage
Helen Keller believed in a world without barriers to human potential and, determined to achieve this vision, co-founded our organization in 1915. Today, our global community of staff, partners and supporters work side-by-side to keep Helen’s remarkable legacy alive by delivering life-changing health solutions to families who have limited access to care. In Africa, Asia, and the U.S., our practical, science-based programs empower people to create opportunity and build lasting change for themselves.
