Welcome to Light For the World Uganda Careers
Light for the World is a global disability & development organization, breaking down barriers to enrich society and unlock the potential in all of us.
We enable crucial eye health services and empower people with disabilities in some of the poorest regions of the world.
We focus on the poorest and hardest to reach because those people need it most.
We create change through local people, organizations, and governments because we want our impact to last.
We try new things because we believe in the power of innovation!
We work with partners because we cannot do it alone.
Our mission and vision
Our mission is to contribute to a world in which persons with disabilities fully exercise their rights. The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities guides us. Persons with disabilities living in poverty are amongst the most excluded groups in society. They are at the center of our work and they drive the change.
- We engage in empowering persons with disabilities to take development into their own hands.
- We strive to overcome all barriers in society and create access for people with disabilities.
- We are committed to improving eye health and promoting inclusive education, community-based rehabilitation, disability rights, livelihood, and disability inclusion.
- We pay specific attention to women with disabilities, children with disabilities, and more excluded impairment groups within the disability community.
The UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities guides us in our work.
