What we stand for
TechnologyOne Foundation is committed to making a difference to underprivileged and at risk youths in our communities, by empowering them to transform their lives and create their own pathways of success.
Together with the Fred Hollows Foundation, the TechnologyOne Foundation is continuing the work that Fred Hollows set out to do – restoring sight, fighting for change and empowering communities.
The Vietnam Child Eye Care program focuses on the development and adoption of a national eye care screening guideline.
The existing eye health and linked services available to school aged students in Vietnam is poor and leads to missed opportunities to detect and treat eye conditions in children. This has long-term effects on children’s full potential development, including educational outcomes and future work and earnings.
Over 20% of Vietnamese school children are impacted by visual impairment, and two thirds of vision impaired children have never received an eye examination or do not wear spectacles.
Our commitment will improve eye health for all Vietnamese primary and secondary school children by encouraging healthy eye care practices to prevent visual impairment.
