We are honored to receive the INDEX:Award for See Better to Learn Better today. Since the launch of the program, 358,000 kids have received a free pair of eyeglasses in Mexico. By choosing their own color combinations, shapes and sizes, the kids are co-designing their future. The INDEX cash prize will allow fuseproject to continue to support our partners, non-profit Verbien and champion manufacturer Augen of Mexico, as well as take the program to new places: from San Francisco to remote islands in Indonesia.
INDEX gave us love 4 years ago when the One Laptop Per Child was awarded the prestigious prize, and 3 million children have used the laptop since. As the first team to receive the award twice, we say thank you thank you.
