About Us

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

A staggering 90% of all vision loss is treatable or preventable. That equates to 1.1 billion people on this planet, living with vision loss from avoidable causes. 90% of these people live in low- and middle-income countries, and 55% are women and girls.

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.
