Eyemantra Netra School Screening Project
About the Project
Eyemantra.org partnered with Jivodaya Eye Care Charitable Trust to provide vision care to the school children of government schools in East Bangalore.
Requested by a nodal officer from the government’s Department of Health, the program aims to reach 51,000 school children and is an ongoing project. The program provides eye refraction testing by Jivodaya’s qualified staff followed by the installation of a Jivodaya vision wall in each and every school. The training was also imparted to the school teachers. Eyemantra.org distributed free spectacles to more than 1,500 children.
