Eco schools - We need your old glasses to help others see.

17th Jan 2016
Eco schools - We need your old glasses to help others see.

Did you know 10% of the world’s population is disabled simply because they do not have spectacles?

13 million children are visually impaired because they do not have glasses.

Without good eyesight many children are missing out on their one opportunity to get education.

 

Here in St. Mary's we are working with Vision aid overseas. Vision aid recycles old glasses in an environmentally friendly way. Money raised is then used to pay for sight saving surgeries and glasses for people overseas.

Please bring any unwanted glasses to Room 25 and our Eco schools committee members will ensure they are used to help others.
