HelpMeSee was chosen as a top 10 nonprofit and social enterprise at the 6th annual Classy Awards, in recognition of its innovative program to end cataract blindness through surgical training.
The Classy Awards, which Classy presents in honor of “remarkable changemakers of our generation,” are the capstone event to the three-day Collaborative conference in Boston, which brings together social innovators such as charity: water, Heifer International and Microsoft Philanthropies.
In April 2016 HelpMeSee’s program was nominated among 100 finalists for the Classy Award.
Winners were selected by a 110-member honorary board of leaders and experts from academia, non-profit organizations, for-profit corporations, global NGOs and other industries.
