#3: Vision Statements

Vision Statement 1: Healthy, educated people – the foundation of prosperous societies (Results for Development)
The vision for R4D has been fairly constant over the years but I would say the approach and strategy to progress towards this vision has evolved over time. The focus of the organization remains to be in the areas of health, education and nutrition but it now really focuses on supporting local change agents to help address immediate challenges in these areas while also capacitating them to build stronger ecosystems to support and enable health and educated people.

Vision Statement 2: To ensure every person can access and afford the AT they need, enabling a lifetime of potential (ATScale)
ATScale is a fairly new organization and was established in 2022. Their mission to help achieve this vision is to catalyze action, amplify existing work, and coordinate and mobilize global stakeholders with unified strategies to increase availability of and access to AT. They have also set an ambitious goal to ensure that 500 million more people globally are reached with life-changing AT by 2030.
