Meet Our TeamWe have an amazing medical team and ministry staff who lives in Togo and two staff at our headquarters in Tyler, TX. Our team is made up of 15 native Africans and 5 Americans.
President and Founder
Lewis and his wife Naomi started Sight.org in 2012. God showed him a great need in Togo as he was traveling through West Africa. He couldn’t go back home without doing something about it. Now hundreds of people in Togo are having their sight restored every year.

As the Co-Founder, Naomi works to insure the safety structure of Sight.org. Naomi trains and certifies all team members to perform CPR, basic life support, and first aid.
