Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, all member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The goal of the agenda is the cooperative achievement of 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) that provide a shared blueprint for a more peaceful, prosperous and equitable global future. Although many of the goals are interconnected, we focus on five key goals to guide our sight-saving work, leading to a positive impact for as many people as possible.
Millions of people suffer from avoidable blindness. The ones who suffer most often live in conditions of extreme poverty without access to the care they need, or the ability to pay. But there is hope. Starting with our community health workers.
Building strong partnerships is at the core of what we do. Our partners help us mobilize and share knowledge, technology and resources to ensure that our work is efficient, intersectional and impactful. Through partnership and collaboration, we reach new audiences and beneficiaries, effectively furthering our mission to prevent blindness and restore sight.
