Muhtar Kent presents:  A Sight for Sore Eyes

"Without access to affordable optical care, many people struggle to overcome easily correctable vision issues, contributing to low literacy rates and difficulty finding employment." -Muhtar Kent, CEO & Chairman of the Coca-Cola Company, in the new Enactus #seeopportunity video. Kent shares how students from Enactus Germany help people in poverty get glasses for $1.00 while empowering the community as micro-opticians.
