Aperçu

En dépit d’être le centre économique et politique de l’Afrique de l’Est, l’augmentation des inégalités au Kenya signifie que de nombreux Kenyans vivant dans des zones rurales ou de grands bidonvilles urbains n’ont toujours pas accès aux soins de santé de base ou aux soins de la vue. On estime que 8 millions de personnes au Kenya souffrent actuellement d’une mauvaise vision non corrigée.

Du côté positif, de nombreuses nouvelles startups et ONG respectent les normes de l’esprit d’entreprise kényan et étendent leur portée aux pauvres à travers le Kenya pour offrir les soins de santé nécessaires et d’autres produits qui changent la vie. Ce sont les organisations avec lesquelles DOT Glasses s’associe pour fournir des soins de base de la vue aux personnes qui ont du mal à voir.
