Sight Savers

Brief Profile

Sightsavers is an international organisation that works with partners in over 30 countries to eliminate avoidable blindness, and fights for the rights and needs of people who are visually impaired or blind.

Sightsavers’ work in India has enabled thousands of people to lead lives of independence and dignity. We have been working with local partners to strengthen organisations and communities, and have supported the treatment of millions of people with eye disorders. We have educated, counselled, trained and rehabilitated people who are visually impaired or blind, and helped extend the reach of eye services to the least served areas of India.

Sightsavers’ vision is of a world where no one is blind from avoidable causes and where visually impaired people participate equally in society.
