Our approach

Promoting eye health

The steady loss of eyesight to blindness is highest in low-income countries. There, the rate of untreated eye disease is 90%, with sub-Saharan Africa being particularly affected.

Championing inclusive education

Education is enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and forms the basis for a self-determined and independent future. Nevertheless, more than 32.5 million children in poorer regions are denied their right to education.

Supporting people with disabilities

Exclusion and discrimination of people with disabilities must finally be a thing of the past. Every person should be able to participate in our world on an equal footing. No one must be left behind.

Together, we are changing lives. Check out what we did in 2020:
