1. POSITION VACANT: Senior Program Coordinator (SPC), SightLife, New Delhi  

2. ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND:

Headquartered at Seattle, WA-USA, SightLife is the only non-profit global health organization, focused solely on eliminating corneal blindness.

Working with surgeons in over 30 countries, SightLife and its Global Partners restore sight to more than 20 men, women, and children each day. This is accomplished through eye banks, which are centres for the recovery and placement of eye tissue used in corneal transplants.

SightLife’s mission is to eliminate corneal blindness globally, through partnerships with eye banks in developing countries, where 90% of the world’s 10 million persons, estimated to suffer from curable corneal blindness, live.

SightLife constituted a small team of senior management and distribution professionals in India in 2010 for this purpose and building on the organization’s global expertise, has successfully implemented a comprehensive program to support the development of eye banks and corneal surgeons, across India.

This is an exciting opportunity to come on board an ambitious social initiative which has already begun to beneficially impact millions of Indians suffering from reversible blindness.
