Striving towards one common goal, vision for everyone, everywhere

Sydney, Australia, 4 June 2019: Brien Holden Vision Institute Foundation & Optometry Giving Sight Australia: striving towards one common goal, vision for everyone, everywhere

Brien Holden Vision Institute Foundation and Optometry Giving Sight Australia will become one entity from 1 July 2019.

The decision was fully supported by both Foundation and Optometry Giving Sight Australia’s Boards.

The work of the new entity will continue to have a global presence throughout Africa, Asia Pacific and South East Asia.

The consolidation of strategy and resources will mean restructuring; some operations will be scaled down and some projects will cease. Staff will be supported during this transition.

For Sandra Bailey, Chairperson of the Brien Holden Vision Institute Foundation Board, people remain at the core of the work of the organisation.

“Both Optometry Giving Sight Australia and Brien Holden Vision Institute Foundation employees are passionate about reducing inequality in eye care and providing our donors with opportunities to make a difference.”

“This renewed direction will ensure we are outcomes driven and can better service communities in need now and into the future.”
