MOMODa FOUNDATION has become one of the partners of Queen’s University of Belfast to implement the THRIFT (Transforming Households through Refraction and Innovative Financial Technology) research project. Again, THRIFT is a part of ENGINE (Eyecare Nurtures Good Health, Innovation, driving-safety and Education) is the first research project to explore how eyecare can drive progress toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
Supported by the Wellcome Trust and the Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation, ENGINE will deliver four novel trials in four countries through the work of 29 organizations. Knowledge gathered from these trials has the potential to improve the lives of millions of children, teens, adults, and elders. ENGINE will apply a single low-cost intervention, glasses, to overcome the largest unaddressed disability in the world, vision loss.
ENGINE will transform lives by creating safer roads for all, financial independence and healthy aging for the elderly, and smart schooling for children. Since this is a multi-stakeholder project, all PIs, Researchers, and Project Management personnel meet virtually once a week to keep updated about the project’s progress. Besides, bidirectional learning sessions are also taking place fortnightly with a view to the joy of learning from each other and together.
