The Optical Foundation works closely with the Optometry Schools at the Universities in Ghana to support and drive the education in optometry. These relationships help to build and sustain a skilled pool of specialists for the long-term sustainability of eye health care in Ghana. One of the ways that we help is by facilitating donations of equipment to assist education programs at the Optometry Schools. The donated equipment supports hands-on training and education for the Ghanaian optometry students.
The Optical Foundation’s Equipment Donation Program is also designed to make equipment available for collaboration with locally driven rural community eye examination projects.
How Can I Donate?
The Optical Foundation’s Equipment Donation Program invites schools to request equipment that would benefit their curriculum, and invites companies to donate equipment when and where it makes sense for their business.
