Helping to eliminate avoidable blindness

About Us

We are working together to prevent and treat blindness

We aim to raise USD 100mn by 2020 for projects to tackle avoidable blindness.  Working in partnership with leading eye care organisations and NGOs, we will fund the development of local eye care capacity to provide sustainable and quality eye care for millions of people with little or no access to services.

Since our launch in 2003, we’ve reached over 53 million people. Every dollar raised is matched by Standard Chartered  – doubling our impact on the ground.

Seeing is Believing is a collaboration between Standard Chartered Bank and the International Agency for Prevention of Blindness (IAPB).
