Eyes on Africa is a non-denominational non-profit organization whose mission is "to provide eyeglasses to Africans with no access to vision care". Imagine hitting middle age with close vision failing, and being unable to read fine print or see well enough to do your beading, weaving, carving etc. The inexpensive reading glasses provide deserving Africans with the ability to continue their reading and handicrafts into old age. Eyes on Africa has distributed over ten thousand pairs of glasses to more than a dozen countries. It's a simple concept, and one we can easily take for granted.
