Your generous gift allows us to help 300 million people in 21 countries.

Co-founded in 1915 by Helen Keller, HKI provides life-saving, life-changing care to some 300 million vulnerable and disadvantaged children and their families every year. Working in 22 countries, including the United States, our team of experts is combatting the causes and consequences of blindness and low-vision, malnutrition, and the pain and stigma of preventable diseases that target the world’s poor.

In one year alone, HKI's programs provided:

  • 54 million children in sub-Saharan Africa with high-dosage vitamin A supplements to ensure good vision and health;
  • 38 million people with treatment to prevent blinding and disfiguring diseases, like trachoma, lymphatic filariasis, and river blindness;
  • 1 million+ families in Africa and Asia with the tools and training needed to grow more nutritious food;
  • 82,000 U.S. students living in some of our country’s poorest neighborhoods with vision exams, and prescription eyeglasses to nearly 18,000.

Maximizing Your Gift

Of every dollar we spend, 84.4 cents goes directly to help save the sight and lives of vulnerable children and their families.

“HKI...gets more bang for the buck than almost any group I can think of.”

— Nicholas Kristof
