Better Vision Brighter Future

In low-income countries, many lack access to vision care. Poor eyesight can prevent children from succeeding in school, and adults from earning a living to support their families. IRT’s Better Vision-Brighter Future program has responded by sending trained volunteers to rural communities in Guatemala and Mexico to conduct vision tests, and provide men, women and children with corrective glasses. IRT has previously provided these services in Honduras and Uganda.
