A group of businessmen in coordination with the Ministry of Education, established the Program Ver Bien para Aprender Mejor (Good Vision to Learn Better) to face visual acuity problems that affect the learning capability and the dropout of students.
On April 24th 1998, the Ver Bien para Aprender MejorPrivate Trust number 13744-6 was established to guarantee transparency in the management and the use of donations.
The main objective of Foundation Ver Bien para Aprender Mejor is to assist Mexican children with visual acuity deficiencies such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, amblyopia and astigmatism. These problems can be corrected with a pair of eyeglasses.
If vision problems are not detected in childhood they can have a direct and negative impact on a children’s family and social integration. A good vision and the learning process go hand in hand. A child with visual problems does not learn and does not understand, thus the self-esteem and school performance are affected and it can even be the main cause of school dropout.
We are based on methodology where we trust our children’s visual health into certified professional optometrists and we donate premium quality eyeglasses.
To provide optometric care and high quality eyeglasses to all children in public elementary schools in Mexico with visual acuity problems (myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism). To promote equal opportunities among Mexicans by reducing poor school performance, high failure and school dropout.
HOW DO WE WORK
The benefited student chooses from 3 frame models and 10 different color combinations.
The eyeglasses are made according to the prescription of every student registered online by the optometrist.
