Sightsavers Reports

Education strategy 2013-2018

October 2017

This document outlines Sightsavers’ strategic directions in education for 2013-2018.

It begins by placing our work in the field of education in its various contexts. It then identifies the goal of our work, before identifying the approaches and fields of activity which will enable us to achieve this goal. The key elements of the strategy were identified in an education summit held in December 2012, attended by staff from across the organisation and external consultants.

The strategy has since been developed through internal consultation and analysis of relevant research. It will be implemented at all levels of the organisation – internationally, regionally, and nationally.
