The foundation was founded in August 2015 by Annemieke Oost and Gert-Jan de Hoon. They met during a workshop 'Be the director of your life!' in Winterberg 2014. Gert-Jan spoke about the Camino and how he had walked as a pilgrim to Santiago de Compostela. Being visually impaired, Annemieke asked if she could walk the Camino. With this question Camino Walking Blind was born. Annemieke has been visually impaired since 2007 because of a progressive eye disease. Her dream of walking the Camino only got stronger.
