Changing Lives Across Rwanda

Vision for a Nation is transforming the lives of ordinary Rwandans.

Restored sight has an immediate impact on the quality of life and prospects of an individual. It also improve the lives of their families and strengthens communities.

In just four years we have trained over 2,600 nurses across 502 health centres to provide local and affordable eye care. And we are delivering an unprecedented outreach programme to all 15,000 communities across Rwanda.

Nearly one million people have already been helped.
