The Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation has partnered with Charity Vision for many years on our global programs.
We are pleased to expand this partnership to include providing school children with vision care and eyeglasses!
Nearly seventy percent of children dropping out of school in the developing world have an unmet visual health need. Whether it’s a simple pair of glasses or an involved surgery, the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation and CharityVision International are combining efforts to answer the call for a brighter future for these children!
In partnership with local optometrists, both organizations are co-launching a new school screening pilot program for the children of Bogota, Colombia in April 2015. This year alone, our mobile team estimates distributing 1,800 glasses to children in need and screening nearly 15,000 children for visual health impairments right in their own neighborhood.
We plan to extend the program to other countries in Latin America in the coming years, creating an unstoppable force for good in the promotion of visual health, literacy, and education throughout the world!
Many thanks to the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation and its distributors in the Americas Region!
