Orbis International is an international non-profit that brings people together to fight avoidable blindness. With our network of partners we mentor, train, and inspire local eye care teams to fight blindness in their communities. We believe that no one should live a life of unnecessary blindness, simply because of where they were born. A staggering 90% of all vision loss is treatable or preventable. That equates to 1 billion people on this planet, living with vision loss from avoidable causes. 90% of these people live in low- and middle-income countries, and 55% are women and girls. With donors, volunteers, staff, and partners, we aim to leave a long-term eye care legacy that will restore vision for generations to come. It’s an exciting time to join Orbis.
