Story

KRISHI NGO - SEE2READ Programme is our flagship program to safeguard the vision of school going poor children aged 5 years through 15 years.
According to educational experts, 80% of learning is visual. So if a child can’t see well, he can’t learn well. Yet most young children don’t get their vision screened until they have problems learning or paying attention in school. By then, it may already be too late. Unless vision problems are detected early and corrected, they risk becoming permanent before they complete their schooling itself. 

Krishi NGO screens poor children in rural areas with a district wide network eye-specialist doctors, that brings together our See2Read program a great success. As per the statistics in India, it is found that 22% of children are suffering with sight related problems during their schooling.  Since the problem in rural areas is an ignorant and un-attended problem, the risk of compromising on their studies and school drop-outs are the visible consequences. 

Our mission is to ensure eye screening and follow-up care is given to all kids because every child deserves to learn and see the world clearly. To do this, we will work with doctors at nearest town or cities, to increase the number of screening programs in rural villages in order to reach more children when it is possible and where it is needed. We also provide spectacles at free of cost for the children found with sight related problems.
