The founders, voulenteers and the entire organization are so sincere, dedicated and committed. Quite notably they work for this cause with a great sense of humility. I have had the opportunity of visiting the hospitals in India and I thought I was in a private hospital. When I first met with them there was just one hospital and look at today! I am honored to be associated with the SEF family and an ardent fan and a donor.

I have been a long time volunteer of this organization. I have always been amazed at the energy of the volunteers, especially with a busy work and family schedule. The events are very meticulously planned with a lot of attention to make sure the attendees get the best service. Above all the focus that the organization has towards the cause is quite motivating.

The cause is huge- and the dedication of the volunteers and care given to the donors is what makes this organization shine. Volunteers are motivated by the Yeomen work done by the dedicated staff in India and seeing the results of their work- giving vision to the needy. Donor satisfaction is one of the key drivers. I really enjoyed my journey and hope to continue with this journey in the future.

Sankara Eye center ia one of the first and probably very few private hospitals doing dedicated work for the poor. The USP of this hospital was and still istht they extend the same care and treatment to people of all classes-rich or poor Each and every poor patient is also treated with the same care a rich would get.Snkarta eye foundation, an organization started by a few NRI-s,who believed in this good cause and thought it would be a shame if good work like this could not reach many more people in different parts of the country. Sankara Eye foundation , USA started imploring the good people of USA to contribute to this cause..The response was incredible and the vision of the foundation to launch 20 hospitals by 2020 started taking shape and catch momentum. This foundation has proved to one and all that if you havre a noble cause, strong determination and a great volunteering team to back you up you can achieve what you set out to achieve. For any program to scale up to greater lengths a lot more organizational skills and involvement of the local community the hospital is in is imperative. The foundation should probably consider strengthening its volunteering base in India too and motivate the volunteers here to help out the hospital in implementing its programs, running the centers with more professionalism and corporate precission. That will bring in a lot of transparency and quality into the work too. They could also consider bringing in corporates to conduct workshops for the managment staff in leadership, administrational and HR related matters. Then the foundation will have a handle on all the departments and I feel this will help in the running of the hospitals. I have personally seen how the foundation conducts its meetings and events and saw a lot of comradeie among the founding mwmbers and the young volunteers. Probably this quality is what endears many to the foundation. Any activity done from the heart with all honesty has to become successful.The foundation has all these ingredients.

I have been associated with Sankara Eye Foundation for the last 6 years. I was just a donor to begin with and was then introduced to this organization by a friend. Its been a wonderful journey from then on. The mission (Vision 20/20 by the year 2020) of this organization is so powerful that it makes you want to work hard to achieve this goal. The board members are so motivating and are always open to ideas that can help the organization expand and grow rapidly. Various events and activities are organized to raise funds and are very efficiently managed. 4-star rating by Charity Navigator for a sound fiscal management is a proof of that. The dedication in service to the public and poor is noteworthy. Our partner in India, Sankara Eye Society prove this every day. Its no surprise that they received the FICCI Healthcare Excellence Award in the category of "Best Community Driven Healthcare Programme". It gives me immense pleasure to be part of this great organization which has given me more in life than what I have contributed. I'm sure I will continue to be with them for however long I can.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have only recently begun to volunteer with Sankara Eye Foundation; however, since my parents are frequent donors, I have long been familiar with Sankara Eye Foundation and its mission. I have always wondered how so many needy people can be helped through the efforts of just one group of people. And here's how: dedicated volunteers willing to put in a sincere effort for a cause they believe in, incredible organization and preparation, and the ability to reach out for the community's support. I am very impressed with the work of Sankara Eye Foundation, and am looking forward to becoming more involved as a volunteer.
