Administrative History: Helen Keller International (HKI), a non-profit organization headquartered in New York City, is devoted to the alleviation of preventable blindness and the reduction of malnutrition worldwide. HKI provides nutrition and health programs through its partnerships with health organizations, governments, and community groups. The organization traces its origins to the British, French, and Belgian Permanent Blind Relief War Fund established in Paris in 1915, which assisted soldiers blinded in World War I. In 1919, the organization was incorporated as the Permanent Blind Relief War Fund for Soldiers & Sailors of the Allies. After WWII, the Fund became affiliated with the American Foundation for the Blind and changed its name to the American Foundation for the Overseas Blind (AFOB). In 1977, the organization became known as HKI.
