Nov-Dec Newsletter – Celebrating Our Impact and the Year of Vision

Dear Partners and Friends,

2019 was an extraordinary year of learning, expansion, and impact at RestoringVision. We grew our unparalleled network of service delivery partners to more than 1,800 organizations strong that today have a capacity to serve more than 6 million people collectively. We expanded our presence within the optical nonprofit eco-system, from participating in events such as Sightgeist in London and presenting at the VOSH International conference in Orlando, to establishing our role with the Clear Vision Collective in Bangladesh. We completed our first evaluation study assessing RestoringVision’s work and the availability and affordability of reading glasses in two countries: Mexico and Nigeria (report coming soon). And most importantly, together with you, we transformed the lives of over 2.7 million people in need through the gift of clear vision.

As we reflect on these successes, we also look to our future. This year, our priorities are building a sustainable organization, setting a new strategy, and fundraising in order to serve the growing demand for glasses. In parallel, we have an ambitious goal and campaign to impact 20 million people by the end of 2020. There’s never been a more exciting time to join our cause. Get on board in bigger and better ways this year, the year of vision! We invite you to go the extra mile with us on behalf of millions of people who depend on all of us for clear vision.

Best regards,
Pelin Munis, Ph.D.
Executive Director, RestoringVision
