Since 2012, Education In Sight has screened over 76,000 students and delivered 11,239 pairs of free eyeglasses. Help us bring this solution to every student across the world. Our mission right now - solve the problem of poor vision for every rural student in Yunnan province (~915,000) within the next two years. From there, we plan to expand province by province to the rest of China.

Uncorrected Poor Vision

At Education In Sight, we connect resources directly inside schools to deliver the exams, eyeglasses, and engagement students need to see clearly and succeed. Leveraging our partner networks in China, such as Teach For China and local education bureaus, we have delivered over 3,000 pairs of glasses since 2012.

“PIM exposed me to the nonprofit world and all of its possibilities. From my position on Model Foundation, I learned about both foundations and NGOs. I gained an understanding of the nonprofit sector as a dynamic field that I could see myself entering in the future. It also showed how easy it is to get involved in philanthropic work, even as a student! I got to work with all sorts of different people and create connections that will remain meaningful no matter what path I ultimately take."

“PIM opened up a whole new horizon for me, taught me how to take a real responsibility, and enlightened me to incorporate my academic interests such as psychology into the wider world of philanthropy."

“I feel very lucky to have encountered PIM at the very beginning of my philanthropic journey. With its emphasis on effectiveness, impact and the value of every individual, it totally changed how I perceive philanthropy. I wish I could tell more people about PIM's philosophy and really make a difference. “
