Sightsavers in Ghana
Sightsavers has been working here since the 1950s. We are working with the Ministry of Health to support the current five-year action plan for eye care at both regional and national levels.
Projects in Ghana include integrating children who are blind or visually impaired into mainstream schools, helping people regain their confidence and livelihoods after losing their sight, as well as preventing and treating eye problems in the neediest areas of the country. We are also tackling the shortage of eye care workers by supporting local people to train as eye care professionals.
