#2030inSight

A worldwide mission to cure blindness

2030 IN SIGHT is the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness’s strategic plan for the next decade. A call to action to embed vision as a fundamental, economic, social and development issue, all of which are fundamental to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

We are curing blindness and leaving a legacy of community eye hospitals in the world’s poorest communities. We’re taking our microsurgical outreach camps to Nepal, India, Indonesia, Bhutan, Myanmar, Bangladesh, North Korea, Afghanistan, Rwanda, Tanzania, Lebanon and Syria.

The number one United Nations Sustainable Development Goal is to end extreme poverty everywhere.

We are sharing our stories and building awareness that this goal can only become a reality when there is also a coordinated international effort to prevent and eliminate needless blindness, which is both a cause and a consequence of extreme poverty.

The Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation has partnered with the Evening Standard in London to share our stories and to raise awareness.

We have to cure blindness if we want to reduce extreme poverty
