Connecting with the world: the context of our strategy

Sightsavers has been constantly evolving since it was founded in 1950, and this strategy is the next phase of that evolution. We have always worked with partners to achieve our goals, but if we are to make the biggest impact we must also form new alliances and ensure our work dovetails with and influences that of others. Our strategy is ambitious – we intend to make a long-term and profound difference in the world. Our work is crucial in supporting the global fight against poverty. At the core of everything we do are the people at risk of losing their sight and those whose sight is impaired or lost.
