Partnerships, the way we work

Working in partnership is central to our vision

We work globally through alliances and partnerships with local
partners – non-government organisations (NGOs), governments,
donors and businesses – to prevent avoidable blindness and rehabilitate
people who are blind.

Since setting up operations in India in 1966, we have been delivering services
around eye health by collaborating with local partners. The strength of our
partners’ expertise and local presence coupled with our experience makes
our partnership model work more effectively for our beneficiaries. At the same
time, it enables our partners to benefit from their alliance with us, whether it
be in their business (through brand image enhancement) or in developing
their capacity for sustainable growth so that they can work independently
of our support later.

Sightsavers abide by the seven principles that are fundamental to partnership

  • Shared goals and compatible values
  • Interdependence
  • Mutual accountability
  • Ownership
  • Openness and understanding
  • Joint learning and mutual support
  • Consistency
