Welcome to First Sight
Empowering Lives Through Vision
Jambo and Karibuni!
Hello! My name is Nizar Mamdani. I was born in a small town in Tanzania. I was educated in Tanzania and in Japan. Along with my wife, Marsha Mamdani, Ph.D., we established First Sight LLC, a a philanthropic organization to address the very dire and urgent need for affordable vision care in developing regions.
During my work with the University of Nebraska Medical Center/Nebraska Medicine (UNMC) where I was the Executive Director and the founder of International Healthcare for 20 years, I visited more than 220 healthcare institutions in 57 countries and concluded strategic partnership programs with 122 institutions in 44 countries. We provided effective healthcare training to our international healthcare partners and treated hundreds of international patients.
Through these travels, we recognized the acute need for widespread access to affordable eyecare. This realization led to the inception of First Sight LLC; a philanthropic organization and a beacon of hope, dedicated to revolutionizing global vision care by providing accessible eyewear solutions. Tens of thousands of First Sight’s high-quality eyeglasses have already been distributed in 30 countries. Click Here
