The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with Orbis International in the search for a Director, Corporate Partnerships.
Orbis International is a non-profit that brings people together to fight avoidable blindness. With its network of partners, it mentors, trains, and inspires local teams to fight blindness in their communities. Orbis believes that no one should live a life of unnecessary blindness, simply because of where they were born. Its mission is to use its amazing network of partners, supporters, staff, and sector leading volunteers to empower local communities with the skills and resources necessary to fight blindness on their own. It works alongside eye teams in communities to provide training and guidance to leave a long-term eye care legacy that will restore vision for generations to come. Orbis builds its networks on trust and commitment and seeks to collaborate with corporate partners, fellow NGOs, and local hospitals. It has made a promise to local eye teams to always strive for excellent, sustainable results that will suit its local partners’ needs.
With the help of its world-leading volunteers, it provides training to all types of healthcare workers—from doctors and nurses in regional hospitals to district leaders and teachers in remote areas. With the help of its amazing partners and supporters, Orbis has been a pioneer in the prevention and treatment of blindness for nearly 40 years. It works where the need for eye care is greatest and where it can do the most good. It has conducted training projects in over 92 countries, over 78 with the Flying Eye Hospital, where it works closely with governments and health ministries. It has long-term projects around the world across countries including India, Bangladesh, Nepal, China, Vietnam, Ethiopia, South Africa, Ghana, Zambia, Cameroon, Peru, Mongolia, and Indonesia. Orbis has positively impacted the lives of millions of adults and children enabling them to see the world clearly and reach their full potential.
