NCR/ Remote

1. POSITION(S) VACANT: Project Coordinator (Reports), Seva Foundation, NCR/ Remote

 

2. ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND:

 

Seva Foundation (Seva) is a global nonprofit eye care organization that transforms lives by restoring sight and preventing blindness. Since 1978, Seva has provided sight-saving surgeries, eyeglasses, medicine, and other eye care services to more than 40 million people in underserved communities around the world.

 

Globally, at least 2.2 billion people have a vision impairment, and of these, at least 1 billion people have a vision impairment that could have been prevented or is yet to be addressed. Seva’s programs have been instrumental in making eye care available to those who can't afford it. They are driven by four pillars - establishing self-sustaining vision centers, eye care for kids, bringing the best in technology, and training and job creation. Seva believes that restoring sight is one of the most cost-effective ways to relieve suffering and reduce poverty. When a blind person gets her/ his sight back, s/he can go back to work, earn, and support her/ his family. In more than 20 countries, Seva has helped nearly 5 million people who were blind to regain their sight.

 

Seva  works with more than 60 hospitals in India and Bangladesh to strengthen their capacity to provide quality, comprehensive eye care services. Seva’s partner hospitals share the financial and physical performance metrics on a quarterly basis such as project achievement (quantitative data and qualitative narrative) reports and financial expenditure for multiple projects through Dropbox/SharePoint which is reviewed and analyzed by Seva and Global Sight Initiative partners.
