In South Africa, in 2020, there were an estimated 11 million people with vision loss (19.1%).

The programme is funded by the Visio Foundation (Netherlands) and is executed through a network of local key stakeholders in the province. Our primary focus is working within existing government and civil society structures to create sustainable improvement & empowerment therein; to ensure that partially sighted and blind children, aged 0-18, develop their full potential and participate in an inclusive society, at home, school and in communities.
