Social Enterprise Helps Underserved Communities Have Clearer Visions

Nonprofit VisionSpring is committed to delivering glasses to people in need of a clearer vision. Rather than simply giving out their glasses, VisionSpring trains individuals in developing nations to conduct outreach and vision screenings, educate their neighbors about the importance of eye care, and sell high-quality, affordable glasses to their communities.

The social enterprise may be working on relief efforts, but it also focuses on creating sustainable jobs  and making economic impact. For every $5 donated,  VisionSpring provides someone in a developing country with access to glasses and a restored vision.
