ONCE ['onθe] nf (abrev de Organización Nacional de Ciegos Españoles)
= Spanish association for the blind
Spain's “Organización Nacional de Ciegos Españoles” (National Organization for the Blind) or ONCE is a non-profit-making organization which helps those with impaired vision in the fields of education and employment. ONCE has been remarkably successful in raising awareness (and funds), making it probably the most famous institution of its kind in Spain. This is mainly due to its two best-known activities: firstly, the lottery it runs, for which its members sell tickets in the streets, and secondly, its sponsorship of the cycling team which bears its name.
