I am a Girl! - Susan Koenen (Netherlands)

Watch on sofsocialgood.tumblr.com

Sonia and Anita, two sisters living in India, are now able to see for the first time thanks to a simple operation funded by the organization 20/20/20. In a short form documentary from National Geographic, the sisters’ mother shares what happened when the bandages first came off: “Anita kept saying, ‘Mother, I can see! I can see!’" 

In many countries, blind children whose families cannot afford the operations end up being forced to work as beggars. 20/20/20 helps prevent this by funding the procedures, thus empowering them with the opportunity to create better futures.
