Vision problems plague China's students, and REAP is the leading organization that is taking actions to affect change for these students. We have trained hundreds of teachers and optometrists to scan children for sight problems and intervene. REAP's network now treats 10,000 students a month.
At REAP, our goal is policy change. Once we know which interventions work and which ones do not, we share our results with local, regional, and national policymakers across China, who can take steps to ensure successful strategies are picked up and implemented more broadly.
