Partnership Opportunities

Funding Projects

Whether it is through a corporate donation, matching grant or payroll giving, there are many ways to support our critical work.

Secondary and tertiary level eye care is often the crucial missing piece of a complete eye health care system. Upgrading hospitals improves the availability and quality of services. It includes new equipment and technology, and renovations to the operation theater or relevant units.

Vision centers are primary eye care centers that bring eye care services closer to the community level. They are permanent facilities staffed by trained eye health personnel who screen and diagnose patients, provide eyeglasses and refer patients to the base hospitals for surgery.

The current availability of adequately trained human resources is suboptimal. Trained ophthalmic personnel and eye health workers at the primary and secondary levels are critical to eliminating avoidable blindness.

Our community eye health model effectively eliminates avoidable blindness on a sustainable basis from our intervention areas. With 90 percent of vision loss being preventable or treatable, eliminating avoidable blindness is a cost-effective way to reduce poverty and improve the economy.

We train and employ women as community health workers, empowering them to find solutions to their community’s health needs, become self-reliant and contribute to society. They provide health education, screen families for eye conditions and ensure patients seek the care they need.

You can help provide eye health education and early detection of eye health issues for children in your community.
