We are always looking for people that want to support our work and help us in creating the best possible solution for bringing the joy of proper eyesight to the world. Vision is more than just ‘being able to see’. It enables people to learn, gain a living, to develop themselves and really, to enjoy life.
Poor vision can make people go blind and has big impact on social and economic status of a community.
Holding down production costs helps enormously in making the Focusspec affordable. In practice, due to lack of infrastructure (poor roads, few shops, etc) and low awareness that a simple pair of glasses can help so many is our biggest cost challenge. We estimate that for every pair of glasses that we would like to land on the nose of a child or grown-up in the rural areas, we will approximately need 5 Euro’s (or US$7) in getting distribution organised (setting up a local organisation to assure training, distribution, organising eye screenings, making promotional material available, stocking, etc). “Every pair of glasses wil need 5 Euro’s (or US$7) in getting distribution organised.”
You can contribute to help us bringing the Joy of Eyesight. By donating to the Focus on Vision Foundation we can continue to make an impact on school participation and economic development of communities.
