- Raise awareness for the prevention of eye diseases.
- Promote the education of visually impaired young people.


- 450 children whose age varies between 3 and 15 years.
- parents, guardians of children and teachers of these children

Budget :

3450 Euros (about a third of the requested budget, good for the treatment of 150 children)

Risks :

- Risk of school dropout.
- Risk of going blind.
