HIGHLIGHTS
THE VISION OF 27 MILLION CHILDREN

“I first knew about my sight problem when I was nine years old. Slowly my difficulty of seeing from a distance and near objects became worse in school as well as at home.”
– Billal, Primary School, Ethiopia

In April 2016, Our Children’s Vision was launched with the ambitious goal of reaching 50 million children with vision services by 2020.
In 2018, through the hard work of our 79 partner organisations in 55 countries, the half-way milestone for this ambitious project was met and passed ahead of schedule.

27 million children from America to Zimbabwe have had their vision tested. Over 1,700,000 pairs of glasses have been handed out . That’s over 1,700,000 children whose worlds have suddenly grown brighter and larger with easier access to education, with full participation in their communities, and with all the possibilities that exist in a child’s dreams for their future.

Billal knew he was at a major disadvantage at school. Then Vision Aid Overseas, a partner in Our Children’s Vision, came to his school, provided him with the glasses he needed, and changed his life.

“Now I can sit anywhere in the classroom as the other students. I am very happy with my eyesight and last semester I was ranked 1st in my class .”
– Billal
