The students currently involved with us come from families who barely have enough to make ends meet. Some of them have even told us that it would be a blessing for them to have two meals in a day. When that is the plight of students who belong to underprivileged families, the chances of them going for check-ups or health screening, is slim to none.


TARA Foundation intervened, by taking students in batches to get their eyes checked by local opticians. We were glad this step was taken, as it brought so many optical complications of students to light. Almost half of our students were either long-sighted, short-sighted or experiencing astigmatism. In other words, these students could barely see what was in front of them when walking, let alone the things teachers wrote on the white board at school.


After students were given spectacles to wear according to their optic power, students seemed to have bee doing better in school. They said their vision had improved, and now they are able to follow the lessons in school. This had also improved their understanding of what was being taught. When students’ needs are fulfilled, they become well-equipped to face challenges at every setting and stage of their growth. TARA’s purpose in intervening in students’ health is to give them a better chance in fighting for what they believe they deserve.
