Sadly, the need for vision care continues to grow. By 2050, the overall number of visually impaired people is projected to triple, from 36 million to 115 million. To keep pace with the demand for eye care, we have launched a new campaign – C20/20. It will grow our impact in four key areas: eyecare for children, technology, new vision care centers, and training & job creation.
Through C20/20, Seva plans to fund more than 140 new vision centers, with the capacity to reach an additional 4 million people around the world. We also aim to provide services to more than 3 million children worldwide and bring the best in technology to the hardest to reach communities across the globe. We expect to train thousands of vision care professionals and paraprofessionals, create jobs for them, and help them sustainably provide critical services to their home communities.
Thanks to your support, Seva and its partners can dare to aim higher than ever!
