Announcing the Vision-Aid Challenge

Vision-Aid is pleased to announce an exciting new initiative - the “Vision-Aid Challenge” – a program that we hope will help us scale and reach more visually impaired students in under-served regions through our new online platform – the Vision-Aid Online Academy.

 

Here’s how it works:

 

If you know of a blind school or other social organization working with the vision impaired, or an eye hospital that wants to start low vision screening and vision rehabilitation in your town, please connect with them and see if they are interested in partnering with Vision-Aid. Then raise just $5,000 for one year, and send us a proposal. Vision-Aid will bear all of the additional costs and work directly with your recommended organization to provide the computer hardware, software, online technology and know-how and launch a new Vision-Aid center in the partner organization in your favorite town or village in the coming year.  Join us by becoming an ambassador in our mission to reach more and more visually impaired persons in underserved regions.

 

There are just 3 steps in the Challenge to get a Vision-Aid program up and running in your town or village:

 

1.   The interested person agrees to be the main contact point for that proposed partner, and works in collaboration with the Vision-Aid Board to successfully implement the program.

 

2.   The person commits to contributing or raising $5,000 / year to help cover some of the costs. The remainder of the cost and all of the know-how will be provided by Vision-Aid.

 

3.   The organization in India must agree to meet Vision-Aid’s partnership requirements including a review, to ensure that they meet Vision-Aid's standards in terms of its quality of service and operating model.
