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.
A nodal officer from the government’s Department of Health requested that the program reach 51,000 school children and is an ongoing project. The program provides eye refraction testing by Jivodaya’s qualified staff followed by installing a Jivodaya vision wall in every school. The training was also imparted to the school teachers. Eyemantra.org distributed free spectacles to more than 1,500 children.
