    I agree with Aaron Finch!  Though I really don't mind that our country helps other countries, WHY can't the same happen in the USA? I'm a teacher, the only glasses available to kids who can't afford them are ugly BREAKABLE glasses.  Too many kids that really need glasses can't afford glasses that will last more than a week.

    I do not like this project what so ever. Why is it that once some other country as an issue some one from america has to jump into it and try and fix it. American kids could use free glasses just as much. I'm sorry mexican kids don't have a choice about the glasses they wear but they are still avaliable. I have a stigmatism and I still have to either wear glasses or contacts. Fix american problems before another ones please.

    This is a project between a contract design consultancy and the Mexican government why are you ranting about fixing American problems first? read the article before opening your hateful mouth.

     Sorry if I got it wrong with Arron - all I know is what I just heard on TV.  I guess it's our government that needs to recommendation.
