The Charity Awards - Winner

Award Winner!

Vision for a Nation is proud to announce that it has been awarded Top Prize in the 'International Aid and Development' category by the United Kingdom’s Charity Awards Programme — the UK charity sector’s most prestigious and longest-running awards programme. There are over 180,000 registered charities in the United Kingdom.

The award was based upon the success of its ground-breaking nationwide primary eye care programme in support of the Government of Rwanda that now provides local and affordable eye are to 100% of the nation’s 10.5 million people.

Improving Sight, Changing Lives

Charity Award Logo

Vision for a Nation is a small UK charity with a big vision. We think that everyone, no matter where they come from, should be able to access eye care and affordable glasses.

Two and a half billion people around the world cannot see properly because they are unable to access a simple pair of glasses. Vision for a Nation is working to change this.

In the first programme of its kind we are helping the Government of Rwanda to train nurses in every health centre across the country to provide front-line eye care and affordable glasses.

We are innovating to build an integrated, self-sustaining local eye care service in Rwanda that will continue to help people long after we’re gone. And we’re taking our model to other countries around the world.

We urgently need your support to change lives.
