Consider this: About one in five kids will naturally need glasses to see the board, read a book, or participate in class. Unfortunately, in underserved communities across the country, 95% of kids who need glasses, about 2,000,000 in total, do not have them. What chance does each of these children have to succeed in school, let alone break free from poverty?
Vision To Learn was founded to make sure every child has the glasses he or she needs to succeed in school and in life. Its mobile clinics solve the problem by bringing eye exams and glasses, free of charge, to children at schools in underserved communities.
Vision To Learn now serves children in underserved communities in more than 500 cities from Honolulu to Baltimore, becoming the largest school-based program of its kind in the nation.
