Eyeglass Project With Springboard Foundation

“To be doing good deeds is a man’s most glorious task.” –Sophocles.

During the last weeks of January, with the sponsorship of Springboard Foundation, we conducted the year’s first Eyeglass Project at the Bago Bantay Elementary School in Quezon City.

From January 20-22, our volunteer Optometrist Dr. Jeson Viñas  and Ms. Anne Viñas conducted the eye examination of students of Bago Bantay Elementary School, from Grade’s 1 to 6.   Much to their dismay, they discovered that many of the students at the school suffered from poor eyesight.

Through the generosity of Springboard Foundation, 200 prescription eyeglasses were distributed to the needy boys and girls of Bago Bantay Elementary School on February 2, 2015.  Our aim in providing the students with free prescription eyeglasses is to help them see more clearly, and eventually do well on their studies.
