In 2024 Libraries for Literacy, in coordination with Breadline Africa, began partnering with OneSight Africa to offer free vision testing and free glasses to students at the schools where we have established libraries.
After being trained by OneSight Africa, we conducted pre-screening vision tests at the Bonga school. Pre-screening identifies those students that require more thorough eye examinations

In August 2024, OneSight Africa will conduct a vision clinic at the Bonga school including free vision examinations by optometrists and providing free glasses to students and teachers in need.

Good vision is instrumental in learning. Over 80 percent of learning is done visually, putting students with uncorrected poor vision at a major disadvantage. Good vision is the key to unleashing students’ full potential!

It is estimated that 80% of children with a learning disability have an undiagnosed vision problem.
