SKYGEN International Foundation, Inc. brings the power of SKYGEN USA’s innovations in technology and digital capabilities to bear on a global issue, which is an overall lack of access to healthcare. Our vision is to find cost effective ways to improve healthcare in underserved parts of the world by using emerging technologies. The Foundation works to deliver life-changing healthcare benefits to those without them due to cost and/or lack of access to care and technology.
Our current initiative is to help provide prescription eyeglasses to the people of Tanzania, and in the future, other developing nations.
Eyeglasses and the ability to see clearly can have a transformative impact on people’s lives. Children can see the chalkboard and learn without discouragement; workers can increase performance at their job because they can see better; drivers and bicyclists can operate on the road with more confidence and feel less at risk for causing an accident because they can now see better; and literacy rates can improve because people can see better. The possibilities are endless.
We’re working to train local care teams to use the latest mobile diagnostic equipment for vision testing. Through portable refraction machines, smartphone technology, SKYGEN USA’s eyeglass ordering portal and partner eyeglass laboratories throughout the world, the underserved in these communities will receive glasses custom-made to their specific prescription.
SKYGEN International Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization. At this time, we are not accepting grant inquiries or requests, or monetary donations.
