Welcome to the second episode of Beyond 2020, the series that looks at strategies to eliminate avoidable blindness in countries with developing eyecare services and shares ideas and solutions to common difficulties in working abroad. Today, we look at five tips to help you to choose an NGO that is right for you.

Working abroad in helping to reduce blindness can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, but it can also be very hard, both physically and mentally. The Andean Medical Mission has been working in remote villages of the Bolivian Amazon for over 10 years, and in this episode they share some of their experience and ideas about how to get the most out of your experience.
