We work with local medical teams and organizations to prevent and treat blindness through the construction and operation of hospitals and quality hospital based community eye health programs in India, Kenya, Zambia and Ghana.Our international programs are operated through eye hospitals and general hospitals with eye wards. We fund screening for early detection and treatment of eye problems and we provide clean water where there is a threat to sight. Our work in slum areas includes health eduction and nutritional training programs. We take a comprehensive, sustainable development approach to avoidable blindness-where we provide the skills development and capacity building of local communities as a means to creating self reliance and ultimately self sufficlency. We promote and require our program partners to establish comprehensive guality eye care and to work towards self sustainability.
