Today Sherry, founder of E.O.A, helped us further understand how far our reader donations go. She received an email from a few of her distributors in Africa who expressed that the reading glasses are not only impacting the people that need them, they are also helping the economy. She explained further that "People are very thankful for the reading glasses, and we have been asking them to buy a case for the glasses and the tailor is making a decent sum". In doing this people are 1) getting the glasses they need and 2) making small purchases that they can afford to maintain the quality of their readers while helping stimulate the economy. This type of information is exciting because it shows that our material contributions are making a bigger impact and helping more people thrive than the donation initially provided.
What better news could we get about our efforts than that!?
She shared these pictures too :)
