Our projects aim to provide the infrastructure and services needed for good quality eye care and for good quality of life and rehabilitation for those with sight loss.
Infrastructure projects aim to provide the buildings and equipment required by the local community. These have a defined timescale and fundraising goal. Where possible we involve local craftsmen and builders, to benefit from their knowledge and to promote community engagement and sustainability.
We are involved in setting up services and supporting local people to run these indefinitely. These projects receive input and funding initially, with the aim of them becoming self sufficient in the longer term. We introduced blind football that aims to engage visually impaired young people in a team sport to promote confidence, participation and play. We provided the blind footballs, goal posts, bibs, offered training and the school encourages participation throughout the year. We now hold a five-a-side blind football tournament every year where the learners can show off their skills.
