Sightsavers

Our vision is of a world where no one is blind from avoidable causes, and where people with disabilities can participate equally in society.

Sightsavers promotes equal opportunities and we campaign for disability rights so everyone has the chance to receive an education and earn a living. Women with disabilities face a double discrimination and are often left behind when it comes to access education, employment, health care and full participation in society without stigma or discrimination. We also prevent sight loss and avoidable blindness in some of the poorest parts of the world by treating conditions such as cataracts and refractive error. And help to treat and prevent five debilitating diseases that affect more than a billion people. These are known as neglected tropical diseases.
