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.
