Salary: Competitive for the sector

Orbis is changing
the way the world sees. 253 million people in the world are blind or visually
impaired, but most don’t have to be. 75% of these cases can be cured, treated
or prevented. When sight is restored, children can attend school and adults can
return to work. Every $1 invested in eye health results in $4 in economic gain
in low income countries.
Orbis transforms lives through the treatment and prevention of
blindness. With 400 expert medical volunteers from 30 countries, Orbis trains,
mentors and inspires local eye health workers from surgeons to biomedical
engineers to village healers to save sight in their communities. We do this in
local hospitals, on the Flying Eye Hospital (a fully accredited teaching
hospital onboard an MD-10 aircraft donated by FedEx) and through Cybersight,
our online education and telemedicine platform. Orbis has worked on the ground
in more than 90 countries since 1982, and currently conducts 58 long-term
projects in 19 countries. Through Cybersight we are training healthcare workers
in more than 125 countries each year.
Despite our success in fighting avoidable blindness, the World Health
Organization estimates that blindness will triple by 2050 without intervention.
In response to this, Orbis is embarking on a new strategic plan for 2019-21,
and the global development team will unite to raise additional, critical funds
to help end trachoma in Ethiopia, launch an initiative for women and girls,
develop and scale self-sustaining vision centers, and maximize Cybersight and
