It’s the little things.

 We have a huge opportunity. Children’s eye health is the global issue that we can most realistically defeat in this generation. But it will take all of us, each doing our little piece, to achieve it.

Glas bai elpim yu long lukluk gut

“Glas bai elpim yu long lukluk gut,” means “they’ll help me see good” in Tok Pisin. It’s simple – a pair of glasses changes everything – something that is often taken for granted, but which the team at PNG Eye Care doesn’t underestimate.

A global health issue we see coming

A group of health and development leaders are getting better vision to millions of children in need. Launching today, in New York, Our Children’s Vision is a movement - bringing governments, development agencies, the private sector, eye health practitioners and communities together to provide eye care to 50 million children by 2020.

If you want to be inspired, ask a child what they see in their future. Whether it’s trips to space, singing to sold-out stadiums, or even becoming president - what always stands out is the lack of limits that young children place on their ambitions. But there is something that can very quickly blur those clear visions of success, and it’s a problem with the potential to affect every other child in the world today. To avoid it, we test their eyesight. Now.
Our Children’s Vision is getting eye care services to 50 million children by 2020. Here we present the work of our partners, getting eye care to more children in more locations.
