    Delivers high-quality, culturally appropriate vision care for those earning under $8 a day, the base-of-the-pyramid consumer. VisionSpring has incorporated successful elements of its vision-entrepreneur model into a hub-and-spoke approach, in which the organization's optical shops operate as hubs and vision entrepreneurs act as spokes extending into surrounding communities. Tested and proven in El Salvador, this approach was adapted in 2012 for replication in India. The income generated through the sale of products with higher margins at our optical shops enables VisionSpring to conduct the resource intensive work of reaching low-income communities in remote areas with limited access to eye care. In addition, VisionSpring has partnered with BRAC in Bangladesh to support the Reading Glasses for Improved Livelihoods program in underserved communities.
