Helen Keller International

Helen Keller International is a US-based international development group with a long and distinguished history in preventing blindness and reducing malnutrition.

Founded in 1915, HKI works in many of the same countries as Sightsavers in Africa and Asia, and shares our vision of a world free from avoidable blindness. We have worked together frequently over the years – as well as collaborating directly on delivering health interventions in developing countries, we engage in joint advocacy with a particular focus on the UK, the US and the European Union.

Sightsavers CEO Caroline Harper says of the partnership: “We have worked closely with HKI for many years, and I am very pleased that we have now strengthened this. There is much to be done, especially with neglected tropical diseases now being noted as a major issue in developing countries, and increasing levels of collaboration between like-minded partners is definitely the way forward.”
