Sightsavers is an international development organisation working to eliminate avoidable blindness and ensure people with disabilities have the same rights and access to good education, health and work opportunities as everyone else.

We work with local, regional, national and international partners and governments. With their help, we distribute treatments to prevent disease, carry out eye operations, advocate for disability rights and improve health services to create sustainable development projects.

Sightsavers is overseeing the Inclusive Futures initiative and leading on specific education, employment and health programmes.
