It can be overwhelming to start a program in a foreign
country or pioneer something from the ground up. This presentation will
provide an overview of where a novel low vision program in Tanzania has come
over ten years, how it all started and also provide stepwise processes in its
growth. Use of limited resources and capacity building with local and
international collaborators will be reviewed as well. A review of albinism and
the causes of vision impairment with low vision prescribing options will
also be provided and can be applied to existing classroom and activities of
daily life settings.
