Wen Giving Foundation has partnered with leading eye health institutes to embark on ‘Mission Saksham’, a scholarship program run by Mission for Vision providing students with the opportunity to train as Allied Ophthalmic Personnel (AOP). This program addresses the distinct shortage of AOPs in developing countries; a significant barrier to the delivery of eye health services.
Wen Giving Foundation is committed to providing 2000 scholarships to students from socio-economically challenged communities in India. Preference is given to female students with the hope of empowering women with equal access to education and employment opportunities.
This scholarship program will provide candidates with the eye health skills required to work in Vision Centres, Hospitals and Outreach Services, and in-turn achieve economic independence for the scholar and their family. Through this program, these AOPs will deliver quality eye care services to over 5 million people.
