Sightsavers and Irish Aid

In 2017, we received a four-year development funding grant from Irish Aid, to support our work in West Africa and help us save sight and change lives while delivering measurable results and accountability. The grant supports work in four countries in West Africa: Cameroon, Liberia, Senegal and Sierra Leone.

With four years of focused investment we aim to:

  • improve the eye health system;
  • improve educational opportunities for people who are blind and visually impaired;
  • improve the political participation of people with disabilities;
  • campaign for the rights of people with disabilities (particularly those who are blind and visually impaired); and
  • increase the impact of project management.
