Sonia and Anita, two sisters living in India, are now able to see for the first time thanks to a simple operation funded by the organization 20/20/20. In a short form documentary from National Geographic, the sisters’ mother shares what happened when the bandages first came off: “Anita kept saying, ‘Mother, I can see! I can see!’”
In many countries, blind children whose families cannot afford the operations end up being forced to work as beggars. 20/20/20 helps prevent this by funding the procedures, thus empowering them with the opportunity to create better futures.

The theme this year is “Literacy and Sustainable Development”. Literacy is one of the key elements needed to promote sustainable development, as it empowers people so that they can make the right decisions in the areas of economic growth, social development and environmental integration.
