Their mission revolves around delivering eyeglasses to communities without access to vision care, ultimately empowering individuals to thrive.
By joining forces with Eyes on Africa, the Amsha Africa Foundation expands its reach and amplifies the impact of eyeglass distribution initiatives.

Understanding the Importance of Clear Vision:
At Amsha Africa Foundation, we deeply comprehend the significance of clear vision beyond mere eyesight.
Across developing countries, over one billion individuals face presbyopia, a condition characterized by the gradual loss of clear, close-up vision, typically beginning around the age of 40.
In Africa, the lack of easily accessible and affordable eyeglasses exacerbates this issue, leading to significant challenges in performing essential tasks and impacting livelihoods.
Benefits of Eyeglass Distribution:
Providing eyeglasses is a transformative gift that enhances quality of life on multiple levels.
By restoring clear vision, individuals regain the ability to engage in activities such as reading, sewing, carving, and weaving—skills crucial for sustaining their families. This empowerment promotes self-sufficiency, fosters economic opportunities, and contributes to the overall well-being of communities.
Recognizing the complexity and scope of our mission, Amsha Africa Foundation acknowledges that we cannot achieve our goals alone.
To maximize our impact, we actively collaborate with esteemed partners like Eyes on Africa, DIFF Eyewear, NGOs, medical clinics, Peace Corps volunteers, mission teams, as well as church and community leaders.
Together, we distribute high-quality reading glasses of various strengths, reaching diverse communities across multiple African countries.
Through our collaborative efforts, we ensure that new, high-quality reading glasses are provided to those in need.
We work closely with our partners to organize distribution events, capturing valuable photo documentation of the impactful moments when individuals receive their eyeglasses.
This process enables us to measure the reach and effectiveness of our initiatives while celebrating the transformations brought about by improved vision.
The partnership between Amsha Africa Foundation and Eyes on Africa, supported by other esteemed organizations like DIFF Eyewear, represents a collective commitment to bring clear vision and hope to underserved communities in Africa.
Over the past years, the eye-glass distribution partnership has benefitted over 2000 individuals across Africa
By uniting our resources, expertise, and networks, we can empower individuals, strengthen livelihoods, and foster brighter futures.
Together, we strive to ensure that the gift of clear vision is accessible to all, reinforcing the value of dignity and the ability to provide for families and communities.
