ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Ninety percent of the world’s 285 million visually impaired live in developing countries. Among those impaired, 19 million are less than 15 years old. For children, if they are unable to read the printed page or the blackboard, they are left behind at school.
More than 2,400 VisionTrust children and teachers have already been screened. More than 240 children now have glasses and 24 of those children have had their lives drastically changed.
Help us provide children around the world with sight. Your gift will provide for vision exams, glasses, and bringing in experts to develop local expertise over time.
