Helen Keller International (HKI) was founded in 1915 by Helen Keller and George Kessler. Our mission is to save the sight and lives of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged. We combat the causes and consequences of blindness and malnutrition by establishing programs based on evidence and research in vision, health and nutrition. Our organization is known for sustainability, reliability, efficiency, and the highest level of technical expertise in preventing blindness and reducing malnutrition. We are headquartered in New York City, and work in 22 countries: 13 in Africa, 8 in Asia-Pacific, and in the United States.

Seed to Sight is a blog by and for people involved with Helen Keller International. It is meant to foster dialogue about preventing blindness and reducing malnutrition. With regular contributions from HKI staff and friends from around the world, Seed to Sight will feature stories of those who benefit from our work and recent developments in global health and vision.
