The concept of school health service is is based on the same principle albeit it deals with many disciplines of healthcare. 

We have narrowed down our initial scope to eye care only for the time being.

We hope to be able to widen this to include other disciplines in near future like hearing, oro-dental hygiene, malnutrition and allergies etc.

We consider this a SMART objective to begin our long journey by;

  1. Create awareness in the school managements and society in general employing all modalities of  learning and education.
  2. Prepare an onsite-home-force consisting  of teachers and screeners and students as Eye-Scouts to assist in screening.
  3. Perform visual screening to detect weaknesses of eyesight, among school going children, correctable with the provision of matching eyeglasses.
  4. Employ the maximum usage of information technology in every step and in every stage of the process.
  5. Generate an electronic database with the help of which we would be able to follow-up  and ensure continuity in the process.
  6. Screening activity shall be followed by,  visit of our mobile eyesight testing units, adequately staffed and equipped to test and dispense glasses on their door steps, and to provide assistance to those found in need of secondary or tertiary care as well.
  7. This is aimed to  catalyse a lasting positive social change, that can go a long way towards realisation of our Vision.
