Five ACS International School students, including Niamh Rya from Egham, recently returned from a two-week internship with sight saving charity, Orbis, in Chennai, India.

As part of a two-week journalism internship, five students from ACS International Schools, aged 15 – 17, joined Orbis, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing eye care to disadvantaged communities worldwide. The internship, now in its 18th year and sponsored by the ACS International Schools Foundation, allows students to understand and witness Orbis’s  sight saving work in hospitals, schools and the community.

Based in Chennai, India, the five students visited one of the first hospitals Orbis partnered with in the country – the Sankara Nethralaya Hospital, where they observed a number of procedures including an operation where a nine-month-old baby had their cataract removed.

The students also visited the Elite School of Optometry, where they learned how to spot vision loss and how children’s eyes are tested at school screenings funded by the charity. Niamh Rya from ACS Egham, joined Raquel Garcia and Kate Miller from ACS Hillingdon, Simon Ogundare from ACS Cobham and Fiona Joseph from ACS Dohain Qatar.
