Delta med din kompetens

Yennenga Progress viktigaste uppdrag är att matcha våra Yennenga Networkers idéer och verksamheter med rätt kompetens och nätverk. I mötet med någon inom samma bransch, med samma passion, skapas relationer och ett internationellt nätverk att bolla med, kontakter med företag som har rätt utrustning, och möjlighet att hitta investerare som förstår idén och dessutom kan ge den extra skjuts framåt! Genom matchning blir idéer och verksamheter mer än vi någonsin kunnat drömma om. Framgång handlar om möten, och vad vi tillsammans skapar i dessa möten. Signa upp med din kompetens och bli en del av en spännande utveckling!

New Vision Mali

New Vision cermony 17/12

School children’s vision problem in West Africa is a dormant problem. Children do not even know that they have a vision problem because they believe that everyone else sees like them. Even if the children understand that they have a vision problem, their parents may not afford to pay for eye glasses, which means that they are doomed by their handicap. Therefore, they will not be able to learn to read and write, not because of their ability or intelligence but because they can not afford eye glasses.

The New Vision project was initiated to address this dormant problem, by Robert Sundqvist from Sweden. The project is now a partnership between a number of companies and organizations working together towards the common goal of providing professional eye consultations and eye glasses for free to school children, who are in need but can not afford them. This is to enable these children to realise their full potential.

During the first campaign of the project in November 2016, over 3.000 school children in eight schools in the municipality of Senou outside Bamako, were screened for eye problems. New Vision helped 249 children with free eye glasses and another 200 children received medical help. This campaign changed the life for these 249 children and their families, but it also put the attention to this problem and hopefully more children in Mali and surrounding countries will understand that their reading problems actually is a vision problem and can be fixed with eye glasses.

In the latest campaign during October 2017 in Diago, north of Bamako, around 2.400 school children in five schools received eye consultations and 250 of those received free eye glasses through New Vision at a ceremony on 1 December.

The New Vision project is made possible through a fantastic cooperation between a number of companies and organizations that contribute with their own expertise and funding. Among the partners are two Swedish eyewear companies, OPO Scandinavia and EGO Eyewear, who support the project by donating eye frames, which partly finance the initiative. World Vision Mali works with school administrations and organize the schools, identify the children, and arrange the eye consultations. APIDOM carries out eye consultations to give the children prescription and professional advice. APIDOM and Mali Optique will then prepare the glasses that each child of the project will need. Fondation Orange is supporting the project financially and is responsible for Public Relations and Communication.

This cooperation will now continue in order to make the New Vision project sustainable and to help more school children every year with free eye glasses and eye consultations. We will also continue to bring attention to this problem so that parents, teachers and the children will learn to identify vision problems and let all children realise their full potential.

For every 20€ (200 SEK) donated we can help one more school child with free consultation and eye glasses to a new life to see things clearer.
