We carry out development cooperation in VISUAL HEALTH in Sub-Saharan Africa, creating official bespoke courses – Masters and Postgraduate Diplomas – in local universities, so that in this way they can create a foreseeable future for themselves without depending on external help like ours.
“Education is the key for the Development of a country”
Currently, we provide assistance-based care for the visual health of refugees fleeing war or misery and children in foster homes and orphanages in our country as well as in SOUTHERN countries.
Visual impairment has very negative consequences – children are not able to follow their lessons in school, which prevents their education, reducing their opportunities to find decent work in the future, and adults are prevented from working normally. Their governments offer neither facilities nor care for people with visual impairment, which causes an increase in begging in the country, as it is very common to see people who suffer from visual impairment in cities accompanied constantly by minor girls who are condemned to care for them, ceasing their education, their future, and further exacerbating gender inequality. All this makes chronic poverty and prevents a prosperous society.
