Synopsis

See how a visiting doctor's chance game of football with village girls leads to the Akhand Jyoti Football Academy, which breaks a cycle of poverty and builds on the girls' enthusiasm for football, allowing them to complete their schooling and to train to become the much-needed future employees of the rapidly expanding eye hospital. Girls from all regions, castes and creeds are part of the AJFA.

Lucy Mathen, who some will remember from John Craven's Newsround in 1976, changed careers in 1988 to become an ophthalmologist and set up the charity Second Sight. In 2012 she became the first recipient of the Karen Woo award - recognising doctors who have gone beyond the call of duty. She will be introducing the screening, selling and signing books and there will be a collection for her charity.

Thanks to Lucy Mathen.
