Commitment to Action

So One Million Eyes See Again

Commitment by

Seva Foundation

In 2008, Seva committed to launch the 'Global Sight Network,' now the Global Sight Initiative network. This collaboration powerfully linked a group of eight leading eye care institutions in developing nations to strengthen their ability to mentor under-performing eye hospitals in their regions. The goal is to assist at least 100 eye hospitals to conduct an additional one million cataract surgeries by 2020 and annually thereafter.
