GlobeChanger Lillian Pravada

"Vision for & from Children is about people helping people. I call it everyone's power of one. It is about every person doing his or her part. One action by one individual can spark  a chain of positive events for an entire nation."

  • Lillian's Big Idea

    Lillian Pravda was born with cataracts and would have been blind by age 9. At age 5, Lillian's left eye spun around into her head. In both cases her family could afford the life-saving operation. At age 8, Lillian set out to give back.

  • Get Started

    By age 14, Lillian is responsible for 24,100 donated eye operations to children in need in America and around the world working through one New York City hospital.

  • Impact

    As a GlobeChanger, Lillian is expanding her reach to other hospitals across the country. JAF has helped Lillian build a team and create top-of-the-line marketing and business plans to increase her impact.
