Overview

Sightsavers works to combat blindness in developing countries, restoring sight through specialist treatment and eye care. We also support people who are irreversibly blind by providing education, counseling and training. We help the people who need it most – those living in poverty in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Sightsavers has been active in The Gambia since the 1950s. Together with our partners, we advocate eye care awareness and work in rural and urban areas to identify and treat eye problems such as trachoma.We also support the inclusion of blind and visually impaired children in mainstream schools by training special needs teachers and providing resources.Training local people to become eye care specialists is another important part of our work in the Gambia.

Sightsavers works to both cure people who have reversible eye conditions and prevent people from becoming needlessly blind. Find out more about how Sightsavers is working to provide people who are irreversibly blind with the skills to live a more independent life.It’s our sincere belief that the best way to provide long term eye care in the developing world is to help build up sustainable infrastructures in the communities in which we work.
