Anthropose - Get Give Change

Anthropose Sunglasses - Our First Report

WELCOME!

Change is fundamental to everything we do here at Anthropose. May it be challenging the status quo in the eye care sector or the eyewear industry in Nepal. The need to be original and genuine in the first place with impact bigger and broader than profit was what got Anthropose started. We surely produce sunglasses but we are in the business to help change lives.

We are a big believer in the power of the ‘We’ - a community. Together with our customers who supported us during our initiation we are transforming a simple act of buying a pair of sunglasses into a life changing force. For every 10 pairs of Anthropose sunglasses sold, we collect enough fund to provide free cataract surgery in rural Nepal.

We acknowledge this is just a first step to where we can go and how big the impact can be. Thank you to our customers and partners who helped make our convictions of changing lives a reality.

- Team Anthropose.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

Numbers
94,765 number of blind people live in Nepal.
Of which, cataracts account as the cause for 62.2% of them.

A 15 minute surgery can cure cataract and restore eyesight within 24 hours.
Quick Fix
Impact
Once the sight is restored, it also restores
independence, economic potential and opportunities.

WHY ANTHROPOSE?

The irony of people not being able to afford life-changing cataract surgeries despite world class services being available in Nepal is why we saw the need of a changing dynamic in the country’s eye care system, where support from the government still lacks.
