Project Description

Region: North America

Country: Mexico

Location: La Mision

Total Budget: $30,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Glendora Rotary has been involved in some phase of the Focometer Project since 2001. The Focometer is a hand-help auto-refractor designed for use to measure refractive errors in children's and adults' eyes. It requires no electricity, and has validity and reliability. Based on research, the use of the Focometer is deemed as effective as professional equipment when operated by properly trained lay-persons. The Glendora Rotary Club works with the Rotary Club of La Mision in Mexico to fit people in need with glasses.

Looking for partners.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
