Last year, in a world very different from today, we reached 1.24 million people with our work. The Impact Report 2019/2020 shows how we keep the most vulnerable people safe, strengthen health systems in our partner countries and to shape a better future for generations to come.
Safeguarding means protecting people’s health, well-being and human rights and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse, neglect and bullying.

Because it’s about children. LIGHT FOR THE WORLD works through partner organisations for and with children with disabilities. As organisations involved with children it is necessary to have an understanding of the risk of violence against a child and have a policy describing how violence against children can be prevented and dealt with when it happens.
LIGHT FOR THE WORLD is a confederation of national development NGOs whose aim is an inclusive society, where persons with and without disabilities can participate equally in their social, political, economic and cultural environment. We are committed to improving eye health, and to promoting inclusive education, community based rehabilitation, livelihood and access to disability rights in our partner countries.
