In conjunction with the Child Eye Care Charitable Trust, Operation Eyesight began working in the tribal Dang District in 2008. The program eventually expanded to reach 73 villages, where the population ranges from 300 to over 2,000. These villages are remote and lacked basic amenities like access to transportation and health care. Almost 60 percent of the tribal population was below the poverty line.
Our donors supported the purchase of equipment, training for adult and child education, the development of primary health services and vision centres, surgeries, and primary and community eye care.
