Trustees and Management

LIGHT FOR THE WORLD is an international organization specializing in inclusive development. Our goal is an inclusive society that is open to all and leaves no one behind. We champion barrier-free eye care and support inclusive education and basic conditions conducive to a self-determined life, so that people with disabilities can participate with equal rights in society. LIGHT FOR THE WORLD works closely with local partners, eye clinics and disability rights organizations. This enables us to apply donations in a targeted, sustainable way, to create lasting structures and smooth the way to an inclusive society.
