Reviews for Sphoorti Foundation

Sphoorti Foundation is a good platform for changing lives of children. I have visited the place and their kids. Wonderful place and very homely. They provide basic food, sleeping mats, library room, computer room etc. Kids refer to the founder Srivyal as mama/uncle. Older kids help out with cooking for the younger ones along with a cook, and also help tutor them with studies. They have 2 dogs for the security of the place. They are looking at expanding the building and providing more resources for kids. I would encourage everyone to sponsor a child or volunteer their time there. I am updated about the progress of the child I sponsor each year. Happy to support them further! Thank you Srivyal for good work! :)

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Each room is currently shared by many kids, so having mattresses would help. Breakfast is currently raagi - it is healthy but maybe a change each day will help. There is a study room available for kids which can be more effective, especially if people used it each day during certain study times. Even running some sports, textiles and drawing classes may help them in developing new skills.

When I visited Sphoorti foundation, I didn't feel like I visited charity. It felt like as though I am at some one's home!

The thing that I like most about Sphoorti and Srivayyal is the importance they give for education.

I love Sphoorti!

I visited Spoorthy organization and found the children to be very well looked after. It is one of the few organizations that exude confidence that the donations would be genuinely used for the children. I have been donating for almost 2 years now for two children and am hoping to meet them in December.

Spoorthi favours homeless kids with great planning for their future. Srivyal garu is one of kind,
it takes courage to father these many kids. I hope to do my bit to support him and his future endeavours for spoorthi. I am happy to do so and hopefully this review inspires many!

Lot of us dream to help. Srivyal and team seem to implement it very well.

I know Srivyal and have visited this orphanage. They do an excellent job and really put your money to work. They do a ton with very limited resources. Will continue to support and help this organization in any way I can. If you are looking to support a good group, I wholeheartedly recommend Sphoorti. Visit it for yourself and you will definitely be moved meeting all the kids.

We have worked with Mr. Srivyal and with Sphoorti for over 8 years. The work is exemplary, funds are put to very good use. There is transparency, and Sphoorti staff is doing a very good job. The children of Sphoorti are well looked after and their is a great focus on their health and education. Kudos to Sphoorti for carrying out this noble mission with integrity and effort.

I have known and been following Sphoorti for more than 6 years now. Before I donated, I visited the place, met the children, met Srivial(the director), understood the background, motives and how the place is run and was very much satisfied. The kids are well cared for including food, stay, security, schooling, discipline, sense of family. Extra-curriculars, outings, regular visits to the campus by volunteers/corporate employees, all add up to build a good character for the kids and give them dreams/ideas/people to look up to. The hard work, dedication and love of Srivial and his staff is there for anyone to see and is truly the cornerstone of Sphoorti.
I sincerely request people to come forward and support Sphoorti and help them continue the wonderful work they are doing.
