Our communities are good to us: we work, live, and play there.

Giving back to them is part of our culture, and Marchon employees join with the rest of VSP Global as dedicated and joyful participants in a number of outreach efforts.

Employees vote annually for corporate-sponsored charitable events, and we supply matching funds to support their community efforts.

Eyes of Hope is a global charity platform supporting activities that directly impact communities to give the gift of sight. United with one mission, multiple programs within the Eyes of Hope platform take on challenges involving access to eyecare around the globe.

To date, through our Eyes of Hope outreach programs such as VSP Mobile Eyes and Sight for Students, we've invested more than $165 million in free eyecare to more than 900,000 children and adults in need.

A Child Eye Health Project

We See is a VSP Global enterprise launched in 2014 with a visionary goal of providing eyecare for 30,000 children in Soweto, South Africa.

On April 10, we helped open a new eye health clinic at the Nike Football Training Centre in Soweto. Here are a few of the highlights:

  • Three local schools participated in the day’s activities, including some of the children that the team saw during a trip two years ago. Many of the children who received glasses in 2012 were still wearing them, and their teachers noted a positive impact in their participation and learning.
  • During the launch, 28 children who had been identified before the event received glasses for the first time. One student suffered from myopia (near-sightedness) so severe that anything past three inches in front of the child's face was effectively blurry.Several others couldn't see farther than an arm’s length or were fighting visual fatigue, headaches, and eye strain. Imagine the challenges to learning, playing sports, and just everyday activities with such reduced vision!
  • Representatives from the Gauteng Departments of Health and Education were in attendance and grateful for our participation in strengthening their efforts to increase access to healthcare within the community.
  • 15 local South Africa celebrities, including past and current sponsored Nike Athletes, participated in the day’s activities.
