Friends of Vision for a Nation

Vision for a Nation is an innovative programme to provide universal access to eyeglasses, starting in Rwanda.

Our plan is to screen the vision of the entire population of Rwanda aged 8 years and above, an estimated 7.5 million people, and provide eyeglasses to all who need them.

In order to achieve this goal, Vision for a Nation is using revolutionary, adjustable eyeglasses which can be distributed by trained health workers. By providing universal access to eyeglasses, Vision for a Nation aims to have a positive and measurable impact on the productivity, education, employment and quality of life of all Rwandan beneficiaries.

Friends of Vision for a Nation is a sponsored project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (RPA) and serves as its fiscal sponsor.  All donations are tax deductible and will be used to support the operations of Vision for a Nation.

Goal: Screen the entire population of Rwanda and provide eyeglasses to all who need them.
