Amet nulla facilisi

Open your eyes and let’s create a world without discrimination.

The Open Eyes Foundation is created to help end discrimination and racism. We stand up for the human rights of persons who are discriminated against.
In particular, we fight for the rights of persons with albinism across the world.

About The Open Eyes Foundation

How it all started

In 2021, the BBC published an article about Xueli in which she shared her personal story and the genetic condition albinism was explained to a large public. The article was translated to many languages and went viral. In 2022, Xueli was invited to become UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for the fight against racism and discrimination.
