In this second episode of our web series on the campaign How do you see the world launched by Instituto Ver e Viver and Nissan Foundation in Brazil, meet young athlete Luiza, from the Félix Mieli Venerando Olympic Experimental Gymnasium in Caju, Rio. Watch Luiza share her dreams and aspirations and find out how her first pair of glasses helped her to perform better at school. Aledmir da Silva Junior – the Brazilian sprinter who supported this project – also shares his thoughts on the impact of healthy vision.
“How do you see the world?” is a partnership that was launched last year between Instituto Ver e Viver, Essilor’s social business arm in Brazil, and the Nissan Foundation. This vision health program screened over 1,000 students and teachers in public sports schools called GEOs Ginásios Experimentais Olímpicos (Olympic Experimental Gymnasiums). Close to 400 ophthalmologic consultations took place and 318 free glasses were delivered to students in need.
