Seeing is Believing (SiB) is Standard Chartered’s flagship community investment programme which provides funding to address avoidable blindness and promote quality eye health.
Through Seeing is Believing, Standard Chartered Bank has partnered with the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) and leading international and national eye-care non-governmental organisations to improve access to eye care across Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South America.
Learning and sharing is a strong theme running through SiB. We produce a SiB newsletter every 6 months, where project implementers in-country discuss some of the successful aspects of their projects, highlight any implementation issues & explain their strategies to overcome them. Implementers of SiB projects have shared local research and also mid-term and final evaluations with the wider eye care community through these SiB newsletters.
