Light for the World is a European confederation of national development NGOs committed saving eyesight, improving the quality of life and advocating for the rights of person with disabilities in the underprivileged regions of our world.
Light for the World commits itself to the task of creating new prospects for persons with disabilities, to increase mobility with the help of devices, as well as to start initiatives that will provide education and income. Another objective is to raise awareness on inclusion of persons with disabilities in their family and social environment.
