We are an international non-profit that brings people together to fight avoidable blindness. With our network of partners we mentor, train and inspire local teams to fight blindness in their communities. We believe that no one should live a life of unnecessary blindness, simply because of where they were born.

CHANGING THE WAY THE WORLD SEES

Our mission is to use our amazing network of partners, supporters, staff and sector leading volunteers to empower local communities with the skills and resources necessary to fight blindness on their own. We work alongside eye teams in communities to provide training and guidance to leave a long-term eye care legacy that will restore vision for generations to come.

We build our networks on trust and commitment and seek to collaborate with corporate partners, fellow NGOs and local hospitals. We have made a promise to local eye teams to always strive for excellent, sustainable results that will suit our local partners’ needs.
