While there are 100 million people around the world who need glasses and use them every day, there are an additional 700 million people around the world who need glasses but cannot afford them. Of these 700 million people, 13 million people are children of school age who due to a lack of glasses are unable to make the most of their educational opportunities and thus are disadvantaged for the entirety of their futures.
Vision is an essential part of learning, and without it students are unfairly prevented from achieving their full potential. Sight Learning aims to solve this by donating the millions of used pairs of glasses around the world to the students who need them in order to get an education and make the most of their potential.
My name is Yash Gupta and I’m from Irvine, CA! I myself have worn glasses since I was only 5 years old. As a freshman at Northwood High School however, I broke my glasses sparring taekwondo and had to go to school without them for about a week as a new pair was made. I began to appreciate glasses, which I initially took as an afterthought, and their impact on my education.
Without glasses it is impossible to focus, see, or learn in the classroom, and after this incident I realized the importance they had on my own life. After some research, I learned that there were millions of children who lacked a basic pair of glasses, even though millions of pairs were discarded annually, and I founded Sight Learning, a 501(c)(c) certified non-profit organization that collects and distributes used eyeglasses to students around the world who need them and makes sure that every child has an opportunity to receive a quality education.
