Save the Children: Paper glasses

Submitted by: The Two Sides Team 2016/07/11

Mexico’s Paper Glasses campaign showed how powerful something as simple as a physical insert could be. To help children in poorer regions with their vision, they created a simple test called Paper Glasses. Black paper with precisely placed holes, meant to alter depth of field, allowed kids to test their vision. These paper glasses were inserted into schoolbooks along with an eyesight guide, reaching millions of children and helping many remain in school.
