Vision for a Nation Wins the 2018 Bond Innovation Award
Vision for a Nation is delighted to have won the prestigious 2018 Bond Innovation Award.
Our programme with Rwanda’s Ministry of Health has made eye care accessible to all 11.8 million Rwandans and is helping people to fulfil their potential. We are now taking our ground-breaking work to Ghana to address poor vision.
Tony Hulton, Vision for a Nation’s Chief Executive, said: “Our innovative partnership with the Government of Rwanda has enabled eye care services to be established at 502 local health centres nationwide and extended services to all 15,000 villages nationwide – helping over 2.4 million people to date. This is an unprecedented achievement and provides a blueprint for other countries around the world to follow.”
The Bond Innovation Award "showcases organisations, coalitions or initiatives that are taking inventive approaches as they chart a course through a complex and changing external environment".
