Who We Are
At Helen Keller Intl, we are guided by the fierce optimism of our co-founder, Helen Keller, who advocated for people who would have otherwise been left behind.
Today, inequities in health and food systems rob more than one billion people around their world from their right to achieve good health, sound nutrition, and discover their own, true potential. Improving those systems are the only way to improve lives on a large scale and for the long term.
Together, with our generous community of donors and partners, we provide the right support at the right time for more than 83 million children and family members around the world – helping them to grow and eat nutritious food, stave off malnutrition, build strong immune systems, access life-saving medical treatments, and prevent and treat blindness and vision loss.
Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.Helen Keller
