In Togo, West Africa, it is extremely difficult for visually impaired people to obtain eyeglasses. An eye exam costs as much as one month’s wage and a pair of glasses can cost up to four months of wages. Alaffia is currently collecting used eyeglasses at retailer locations throughout the US, and employs an optometrist in Togo to correctly fit and distribute the glasses. A pair of eyeglasses is life-changing for a child struggling in school, the elderly with failing vision, and adults who have never been able to see clearly.
