“Helen Keller International gets more bang for the buck
than almost any group I can think of.”

-Nicholas D. Kristof,  New York Times columnist 


Every minute 72 children living in poverty benefit from our programs that fight blindness and hunger.

We need your help to reach them!

Your tax-deductible charitable donation will change the lives of women and children in poverty around the world by supporting Helen Keller International’s programs that:

  • Deliver sight and lifesaving vitamin A capsules to  millions of children under five in Africa and Asia
  • Give vision screenings and prescription eyeglasses to  students living in poverty here in the United States at no cost to them or their families
  • Restore sight through cataract surgery for blind people in Indonesia and Myanmar
  • Empower women in Africa and Asia by teaching them to cultivate home gardens that provide healthy meals and extra income for their families
  • Prevent and control devastating Neglected Tropical Diseases, like blinding trachoma, which infect 1 in every 6 people, including half a billion children


This year, Helen Keller International once again received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, the country’s premier charity evaluator, ranking it among the top two percent of all US charities in terms of financial health, accountability and transparency. Helen Keller International was also listed as a Global Journal Top 100 NGO.
