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 Pravada, GlobeChanger
2014 National Jefferson Awards Recipient
Area of Care: Health & Wellness
Impact to Date: 24,200 Vision-Saving Surgeries Donated

  • Lillian's Big Idea

    Lillian Pravda was born with a cataract and endured several surgeries. The more time she spent in the hospital, the more she learned not all children were as fortunate as she was to have access to care. At age 8, Lillian set out to help children in need of sight-saving eye surgeries and vision services, making sure they would get the care they need and deserve.

  • Get Started

    Starting in one hospital in New York City, by age 14, Lillian is responsible for delivering the gift of sight to 24,210 children in America and around the world.

  • Impact

    As a GlobeChanger, Lillian is expanding her reach to 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 to reach more and more children to come.
