The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Child Blindness Program (CBP) announces the release of its Innovation, Global Knowledge & Best Practices (IGBP) Request for Applications (RFA).
CBP provides services targeted to children and vulnerable populations. Current projects provide sight-restoring surgery, screening of children for eye diseases and conditions, and delivery of eyeglasses to schools. Children who are irreversibly blind receive specialized education to improve their daily living skills. This often includes learning how to use a cane or read Braille. The RFA can be found at: www.usaid.gov/childblindness.
Applications are due on December 16, 2016 at 5:00 pm EST.
CBP is a program funded by USAID and managed by Partners for Global Research and Development (PGRD).
