Sightsavers works to cure people who have reversible eye conditions and prevent people from becoming needlessly blind. Trachoma features as a' fast track initiative' within our programming. We have developed a plan that aims, over the next 10 years, to expand our trachoma work to 21 countries that are endemic.
Sightsavers supports the principle of inclusive education, where children who have a disability such as being blind or visually impaired are included in the mainstream education system. It's our sincere belief that the best way to provide long term eye care in the developing world is to help build sustainable infrastructures in the communities in which we work. We do this by pursuing the practices of partnership.
