Overview

Despite being the economic and political center of East Africa, raising inequality in Kenya means many Kenyans living in rural areas or large urban slums still lack access to even basic healthcare or vision care. It’s estimated that 8 million people in Kenya currently suffer from uncorrected poor vision.

On the brighter side, many new startups and NGOs are living up to the standards of Kenyan entrepreneurial spirit and are expanding their reach to the poor people across Kenya to offer the needed healthcare and other life-changing products. These are exactly the organizations DOT Glasses are partnering with to deliver basic vision care at the door steps of the people who struggle to see.
