and unique global health experience. A transformative volunteer
abroad experience for students and professionals, Unite For Sight is renowned

What do Unite For Sight volunteers do? Unite For Sight’s
Volunteer Abroad Program is an immersive global health experience for
students and professionals who are interested in public health, international
development, medicine, or social entrepreneurship. Volunteers
participate with and learn from Unite For Sight's talented local partner
doctors who have provided care to nearly 1.8 million patients living in
poverty, including more than 85,000 sight-restoring surgeries. Volunteers
assist with patient education, visual acuity testing, patient intake,
distributing the glasses and medication prescribed by the local eye doctors, and other important support tasks. They
also have the opportunity to observe the surgeries provided by the local
doctors. Additionally, volunteers may participate in the Global Impact
Lab, an optional program for those interested in pursuing research. For
example, we currently have volunteers pursuing research studies about medication
management, the use of visual resources for patient education, traditional
medicine practices, and patient barriers to eye care.
Unite For Sight is the only organization in the world that:
- is a healthcare
delivery organization that also offers immersive global health
education opportunities for students and professionals;
- uses 100% of
all donations and funds submitted to directly provide
care for patients who are otherwise unable to access or afford
- directly teaches the importance
of supporting and assisting local professionals in their own
social ventures to eliminate disparities in their communities and
- offers an opportunity
to learn from local medical professionals about effective
strategies to reach the hardest-to-reach patients in villages,
slums, and refugee camps;
comprehensive training materials in cultural competency, ethics,
and global health best practices to prepare its volunteers for
a high-impact immersive experience.
