Light for the World is an international organisation specialising in inclusive development. Our goal is an inclusive society that is open to all and leaves no one behind. Founded in Austria 30 years ago, Light for the World started its journey by providing eye healthcare services for blindness prevention in Ethiopia and we now operate 212 programmes in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Southeast Europe which transform the lives of millions of inhabitants worldwide.
We focus on prevention and accessible eye care and rehabilitation of blind persons and persons with other disabilities. In 30 years, 534,600 children were rehabilitated and 796,800 eye operations were performed. Our projects reached more than 13.5 million people in 30 years
