L’OCCITANE and its Foundation reached their goal to provide eye care to 10 million beneficiaries in the world in 2020. L’OCCITANE’s international programme “UNION FOR VISION 10by20” is now called “CARING FOR SIGHT” and has set a new, ever more ambitious goal: 15 MILLION BENEFICIARIES OF EYE CARE BY 2025!
They are calling for projects 2022-2023.
Rules and eligibility criteria
The local project needs to be carried out by organizations of public interest.
The local project must focus on eye care (screenings sessions, provision of spectacles, treatments, surgeries, optometrists or ophthalmologists training, purchase of machinery and equipment, etc.).
The local project needs to have measurable results. The number of beneficiaries receiving eye care thanks to the help of L’OCCITANE must be included in at least one of the lines of the table in 1.12 part of the following application form.
A project with both measurable short-term effects is strongly recommended.
A strong focus will be done on the sustainability of the projects, to become operationally and financially autonomous (including advocacy, awareness raising, local staff training; multiplicity of fundings) and on its capacity to respond to specific local issues.
The local organization should have office or representation in the country of implementation of the project.
