Our Origin

Founded in 2021, The Lamp Project is a faith-based nonprofit organization, created to address healthcare disparities in the realm of eye care through community outreach and education. Currently, vision loss is ranked as one of the top ten reasons for disability amongst Americans with African-American communities being one of the most impacted populations. Thus, the birth of The Lamp Project was motivated by a willingness to meet individuals in the community and provide them with a basic understanding of the most common causes of vision loss and ways to prevent it. With education being one of the social determinants of health and wellbeing, The Lamp Project believes in its power and is committed to being an organization that values the art of teaching and equipping communities with the knowledge to save their vision from preventable causes.
