The new See Change Website
See Change website was launched for the first time in 2013 with dedicated efforts to reach 2.5 billion people suffering from uncorrected poor vision. Through our inclusive business models and philanthropic programs we will have created 50 million wearers by 2020 and improved the lives of many more. After great progress we made over the last six years, we launched recently a new website to give more visibility to these activities and to our ambition to eradicate poor vision in one generation.
Our See Change update reports on the progress we are making in tackling awareness and access, two of the biggest challenges to vision. Through the success of our inclusive business models and partnership programs, we are on track to meet our targets of creating 50 million wearers and 25,000 primary vision care providers by 2020. Read about some initiatives and actions the Group is undertaking in 2018 and the learn more about the lives of people we are impacting through our vision care programs.
The Sustainable Development Goals brochure
Good vision is a must-have for future global development and impacts all of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
