Vision Aid Overseas member, Anil Gupta and his family would like to offer a £500 bursary to first time volunteers in need of financial assistance towards the cost of their overseas assignment lasting 2 weeks to one of our partner countries.

This 10 year bursary scheme is given in the loving memory of Anil Gupta’s father Rajeshwar Lal Gupta who worked in the optical industry.

 “When my father sadly passed away in 2014, I wanted to honour his memory in a way that would not only reflect his life but would inspire future generations of optometrists to share their skills with others” said Anil Gupta

Two bursaries are awarded each year to first time volunteers.

  • 2019 Awardees were Elizabeth Adams (Sierra Leone Nov 2019) and Sumita Mistry (Zambia Oct 2019)

2020 bursary rounds are now open! If you have been selected for an assignment please email Judith for more information. [email protected]
