Recipients of the Inaugural Grant Round

The first ANZEF annual grant round launched in March 2023 for individuals and organisations across the Asia-Pacific region working to improve eye health. A remarkable range of applications totalling a combined value of AU$1.47M was submitted for education, local capacity building, research, awareness and advocacy projects, with many demonstrating enormous potential.

The grant round has resulted in the commitment of $185,000 to fund the following six outstanding projects:

“This call for grants has highlighted the vast scope of work being done in the region to contribute to improving equity and access in eye care. Although limited funds prevented us from supporting all worthy applications, their high calibre made clear how much opportunity there is for further investment. We’re thrilled and honoured to support these six selected projects that promise to deliver positive change for their communities.”

 Paula Llavallol, Head of Foundation.

These grants are made possible by the extraordinary generosity of our donors. The Foundation is incredibly grateful for your support, which has established the grant round as an annual initiative.

Thank you to all those who applied to this grant round and congratulations to the six grant recipients. We look forward to introducing each project in the coming weeks and months.

If you missed this year’s round and have a potential project planned to improve eye health equity and access, keep an eye out for the next call for grants, which will be announced in February-March 2024 through RANZCO and ANZEF communication channels.
