Anthropose - Get Give Change

Our Story


Who We Are

Anthropose is a for-profit social-good company that aspires to recognize and identify social problems and create viable, sustainable and scalable entrepreneurial solutions to them.

We introduced our line of sunglasses as a means to solve the deep rooted problem of cataract in Nepal.

While giving the person wearing our sunglasses protection, comfort and style by crafting high quality sunglasses, we also create a platform for communities to unite to resolve the long neglected problem of cataract by the government and give the often ignored an opportunity to get their sight restored.

Quick Fix
Quick Fix
The good news is a 15 minute surgery can cure cataract and restore eyesight within 24 hours.
Impact
Impact
Once the sight is restored, it also restores independence, economic potential and opportunities.
Why Cataract ?
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.
