This International Women's Day we invite you to see through her eyes.

Fatuma and Nelly represent all women capable of success when they can be their best selves. Yet today, in many developing nations, women and girls disproportionately face more barriers to accessing eye care. The avoidable blindness crisis is a women’s crisis.

To develop eye care programs that work for women and girls, we see through her eyes to understand the barriers she faces to accessing care. Our solutions are designed with her in mind at every step of the way.

Progress is being made, but the need still exists. Can we count on your support this International Women’s Day to bring life-changing eye care to women and girls worldwide? A simple 15 minute cataract surgery or a pair of eyeglasses is all it takes to free a woman from darkness.

This International Women’s Day, let us all see through her eyes. Let’s salute the strong, courageous, and independent women worldwide, and recommit to reach her, anywhere she is.

Please give generously today. Simply complete and submit the secure online form below or call us at 1-877-764-7382.

Fatuma is a small-business owner and entrepreneur in Tanzania keeping up with the pace of her dreams. Like many of the women we've met, she's resilient, capable, and through her eyes – sees the world as one big opportunity.

Even when she can't actually see.

Fatuma knew she needed treatment but couldn't cover the costs of care, transportation, and accommodation. Then, she heard an ad in her village about an eye screening camp nearby. She visited and was diagnosed with cataract. The very next day, her sight was restored through a 15-minute cataract surgery.

She was ecstatic and thanked the hospital, our partners, and you – today she continues supporting her family through her small business.

Nelly is a bubbly 5-year-old girl who loves to play soccer. She has dealt with visual problems since birth.

When she was 11 months old, her mother took her to Esquintla Vision Center in Guatemala, where she received her first pair of glasses to get her through until she was old enough to undergo an operation.

At age five, Nelly received surgery to correct strabismus, improving her eyesight by 80%. When she is old enough to have the second surgery, her vision will be fully corrected.

Today, Nelly can play ball with confidence (And without tripping) and has better focus in her everyday life. With the strides she’s made, Nelly’s mom is hopeful she can start studying next year.
