Vision for Africa Projects

At least 27 million on the continent of Africa have visual impairments close to 90% of which is addressable but is not because of poverty. Our dream is to create a world where no one goes blind simply because of the location of their birth or the color of their skin.

We proactively focus on creating a world where a person’s ability to restore the gift of sight is not dependent on the location of their birth. We also reactively address the suffering caused by easily treatable medical conditions in developing countries through appropriate partnerships with trusted local organizations with the right set of logistics and expertise. With the kind dedication of our volunteers, 100% of public funding goes to restore the gift of sight. The more funding we have, the more impact we have!In 2022 alone, only our 2nd year in operation, we restored the gift of sight and provided free screening to 5287 individuals in Africa.
