"Creating a sustainable social enterprise which brings down barriers to health care and economic well-being faced by under-served and far-flung communities in India and the developing world"

  Our approach

  Based on the highly successful experiment of
  Aravind Eye Care System (www.aravind.org),
  Madurai, India, GRACE VISION intends to serve
  as a platform to :

  Set up clusters of "primary vision care centres"
    in under-served areas. These centres will
    screen patients for preventable blindness.

   Set up “secondary base hospitals”, each of
    which will serve a cluster of primary vision
    centres and provide services to them.

  "Loss of sight can be the greatest tragedy next 
   to death, yet hundreds of thousands of people
   in the world are suffering from blindness.
   Participation by the public is the urgent cry in
   this mission of restoring vision"
