Fundcaión Zambrano's Ver para Apprender campaign provides free eye screenings and glasses to children ages 6 to 11 in communities in need. They also provide training to elementary school teachers on doing basic eye chart screening so they can screen their other students. The training is accompanied by a workbook for the children to reduce stigma around wearing glasses and raise awareness about eye health.
