Our approach

Promoting eye health

The rate of untreated eye disease is 90% in low-income countries. We believe everyone deserves access to quality eye care, no matter where they live or how much they earn.

Championing inclusive education

Education lays the groundwork for a self-determined future. But more than 32.5 million children with disabilities in poorer regions are denied this right. We fight to change this.

Supporting people with disabilities

Barriers to inclusion are still high and many. From the classroom, to the workplace, and beyond. Discrimination against people with disabilities must end now.

Together, we are changing lives. Check out what we did in 2022:
