SIGHTSAVERS Transforming lives since 1966 …


75% of the visually-impaired population in the world could have been leading normal lives with sound vision, had treatment been available to them at affordable prices. Blindness is an important cause and effect of poverty. Surveys state that India is home to the largest visually-impaired population in the world.


WHO WE ARE Sightsavers is an international non-profit organization (NGO) that operates in over 30 countries across the world. It launched its branch in India in the year 1966, and has since been counted among the top 10 NGO in India . Sightsavers have undertaken initiatives to expand the reach of its eye-health services to regions across the Indian sub-continent. Their work in India has enabled thousands of people to lead lives of independence and dignity.


Our Vision We aspire for a society where no one loses their vision because of lack of resources. We aspire for an inclusive society where there are equal opportunities for all to reach their full potential.


Our Objectives To improve coverage and access to affordable, quality eye-health services across India. To increase awareness and improve attitudes towards eye ailments with the vision of an inclusive society. Help educate the vast number of children suffering from visual-impairment and make them active participants in the society. Equip the visually-impaired with skills and assistance they need to earn a living and lead an independent life.


What We Do We work towards elimination of avoidable blindness in the country. Our work also aims at bringing about equality as well as inclusivity for people with disabilities. Assist those with incurable visual-impairment to live independently. We work to ensure that people with visual-impairments have access to preventive, curative and rehabilitative services without financial adversity.


What Are We Up Against? REFRACTIVE ERROR Refractive error , also known as  refraction error , is an eye-ailment where light does not accurately focus onto the retina due to the shape of the eye. It results in an impaired vision. CATARACT Cataract  is clouding of the eye’s lens leading to a decrease in vision. It often develops slowly and can affect one or both the eyes.


What Are We Up Against? GLAUCOMA Glaucoma  is a group of eye-diseases that results in damage to the optic nerve and can lead to vision loss. CHILDHOOD BLINDNESS It may occur due to genetic mutations, birth defects, premature birth, nutritional deficiencies, infections, injuries, and other causes. TRACHOMA It causes a roughening of the inner surface of the eyelids. This roughening can lead to pain, breakdown of the cornea and eventual blindness.

Benefits of Education Sightsavers works dedicatedly towards inclusive education to ensure that visually impaired or blind children are included in mainstream education. It is a crucial step towards eliminating poverty. Children born without handicap are easier to mould so that they accept blind and visually impaired children from an early age and treat them as their equals. Education allows the differently disabled to live in a normal social environment. They no longer feel isolated and participate more actively in general community activities throughout their lives.


Improving Process of Education Teachers are being trained to further the inclusion process and go around schools aiding blind and visually impaired with skills. With the availability of right technology and physical aids like Braille books and white canes along with low vision devices provide greater independence to survive with dignity. Sightsavers is a member of the Global Campaign for Education (GCE). It works with local partners to strengthen the voice of civil society towards the development of national education in India so that free and inclusive education is available to all.
