See Her Potential

June 2019

Blindness is a gender issue – one that leaves millions of women and girls without the same access to quality eye care that men receive. Thanks to our amazing local partners and committed supporters, we're working to close the gender blindness gap and help women and girls reach their full potential.

Why do we believe blindness is a gender issue? Here's why ...

  • 139 million women & girls are living with blindness & vision loss
  • That's 25 million more women than men
  • 70% of people affected by blinding trachoma are women
  • 2 out of 3 children living with blindness are girls
