Since 2002, the Vision Care Technician program has continually worked to recruit bright young women from rural villages to engage in comprehensive training in ophthalmic nursing. Two Global Social Benefit Fellows collected both qualitative and quantitative data by interviewing a large cohort of student and staff Vision Care Technicians in different phases of the program. In order to document the social impact of two cohorts, this comparative analysis intends to further understand how the Vision Care Technician program has impacted women’s lives. Through this study, the findings can be used for marketing material of the Vision Care Technician program, to further donor or investor acquisition efforts, and for Sankara’s administration to understand the depth of the qualitative and quantitative findings.
