Vision Programme — New Partners
We’re delighted to announce continued support for our Vision Programme throughout 2017, thanks to the wonderful generosity of our new and existing funders! Standing Voice welcomes the Charles Hayward Foundation and the James Tudor Foundation as new partners this fiscal year, with both pledging support for the delivery of our Low Vision Clinics in Tanzania. Essilor’s Vision For Life initiative will be an indispensable partner for a second consecutive year: their in-kind contribution of sunglasses, prescription lenses, frames, and reading glasses will be disseminated through our clinics until 2019! Essilor’s transition lenses darken when exposed to sunlight, and are especially useful because people with albinism are photosensitive. The Woodward Charitable Trust has also renewed its commitment to Standing Voice for a second consecutive year. Kennington Overseas Aid, a wonderful trust financed through community fundraising, has meanwhile pledged to support us for the third year in a row! We look forward to their exciting programme of fundraising events this year.
