Zenni Gives the Gift of Sight: Partnering with Children Might Foundation for a Life-Changing Mission Trip to Rwanda


At Zenni, we’re dedicated to the transformative potential of clear vision and its profound impact on lives. That’s why we wholeheartedly embrace our motto, “See Better, Live Better,” as it perfectly encapsulates our mission to empower individuals to live their best lives. We’re thrilled to share the inspiring story of our recent collaboration with the Children Might Foundation (CMF) as they embarked on a mission trip to Rwanda to provide essential eye care services to those in need. Through this partnership, Zenni donated glasses to support CMF’s efforts in delivering comprehensive eye exams and corrective eyewear to underserved communities in Rwanda. Join us as we highlight the incredible journey of bringing the gift of sight to those who need it most.

Empowering Communities Through Vision

Upon arriving in Rwanda, the mission team wasted no time in setting up clinics in local communities, where they offered comprehensive eye exams and distributed Zenni glasses to those in need. The impact of clear vision was immediately apparent, as individuals who had previously struggled with vision impairments experienced newfound clarity and independence. From young children to elderly adults, each recipient of Zenni glasses was empowered to engage more fully in daily activities and pursue opportunities that were once out of reach.

The Impact of Clear Vision

Access to clear vision had a ripple effect within the communities served by the mission. Children who could now see clearly excelled in school, while adults improved their work performance and economic prospects. The provision of glasses not only improved individual quality of life but also strengthened the overall resilience and vitality of the communities served.

Expanding Horizons: Extending Our Reach Beyond Borders

As we reflect on our journey with CMF and the impactful mission trip to Rwanda, we’re reminded of the boundless potential of clear vision to transform lives. This experience has fueled our commitment to expanding our reach beyond borders, ensuring that individuals in underserved communities worldwide have access to quality vision care. Through ongoing partnerships and initiatives, we’re dedicated to making a meaningful difference and fostering a brighter future for generations to come. Join us as we continue to extend our hand and bring the gift of clear sight to those who need it most.

A Lasting Legacy

As the mission concluded and the team prepared to depart from Rwanda, they left behind a legacy of compassion and transformation. Zenni’s donation of glasses played a significant role in this endeavor, symbolizing the company’s commitment to making vision care accessible to all, regardless of geographical location or socioeconomic status. Through partnerships with mission teams and charitable organizations, Zenni continues to uphold its mission of improving lives through the gift of clear sight.

Zenni’s participation in the Rwanda mission trip underscores the company’s dedication to making a positive impact on global vision care. By donating glasses and supporting vision care initiatives in underserved communities, Zenni is helping to create a world where clear sight is accessible to all, empowering individuals to live healthier, more fulfilling lives.
