OneSight is an independent global non-profit organization dedicated to bringing access to an eye exam and glasses to the 1.1 billion people who have no way to get them. They believe that location and circumstances should not stand in the way of a person reaching their potential because they can’t see clearly. They have a proven model that provides solutions in the form of charitable vision clinics to address acute needs in underserved populations as well as permanent access to vision care and glasses through self-sustaining vision centres. Their goal is to create a world where lack of access to vision care is no longer a barrier to human achievement, and every donation gets us one step closer to making that world a reality.
