I admire the work of this organization. By seeing their work and the contribution to the poor in restoring the eye sights to many, I become the permanent member of this great community. My son's eye sight defect has been identified by one of this society's hospital during their teams visit to his college. He has taken treatment at their hospital and his sight has been perfected. I also did a complete eye checkup at their hospital and seen their professional approach in treating with great care. Great work, wish you all success in your 2020 goal.

I have been involved with SEF for more than 6 years now. I got to know about the excellent work SEF is doing in India in one of the fund raisers I had attended. SEF operational model and grand vision of Vision 20/20 by the year 2020 greatly attracted me. The fact that they want to give world class eye care to every Indian was just excellent. Their operating model of making hospitals self sufficient to cater to both free patients and paid patients was something very unique and something I believed in. I started volunteering with the event management team within SEF. The leadership team within SEF greatly encourages new volunteers and gave me a lot of opportunities to lead the organization. After participating in some events in varied roles I was given an opportunity to lead one event from start to finish. This was a once in a life time experience where you get to work with all the volunteers of SEF. The team is just great to work with and they rally around the leader and ensure the events are success. One of SEFs greatest assets and strengths are these tireless volunteers who just want to give back something to their motherland. SEF as an organization is absolutely great to be associated with. The leadership team ensures that they are in touch with volunteers and inform them of all the latest developments happening with different projects. The doctors from India make sure they are in touch with the volunteers here and we have face to face meeting with them whenever they visit the US. As volunteer we are given a constant feedback of how our work here is impacting the mission and helping SEF march toward the goal of Vision 20/20 by 2020. Our Chairman Mr. Murali Krishnamurthy is a great teacher and mentor. He is constantly looking at ways of making SEF successful and helps us, volunteers in whatever way possible. He encourages us to take initiatives and never lets an opportunity to give us credit for what we have done how ever small the work may be. He has taught each one of us to always think of the big picture and our final goal in whatever we do with SEF. He is very accessible and is always leading us from the front. The work ethics and work environment at SEF is par excellence. Any activity that is taken up by the volunteers is followed through with at most dedication and precision. Processes are followed to ensure absolute transparency. The volunteers have great fun in whatever they do also. One of the greatest assets I have gained from my association with SEF is the great friends I have made. All in all my association with SEF has been one of the most enriching experience my entire life and I plan to be associated in future to with this great cause in whatever little way I can.

utilize it in the best possible way to eradicate curable blindness in India and take India one giant leap forward.

I am proud and happy to be in this organization for more than 15yrs. I have been in this organization since my college days in India. I had volunteered in going to various eye camps conducted by Sankara eye hospital Coimbatore, India. My whole family including my daughter and son who are 8 and 4 are also involved in volunteering for this great organization. What I've enjoyed the most about my experience in this organization is the amount of Dedication,commitment and involvement by all the other volunteers when running the organization. Volunteers work together as one family towards a common cause.

The organization raises funds for a very noble cause - giving vision to the people who are poor & blind. The cause is what attracted me to the organization. The charity is rated 4 star on charity navigator - and as its volunteer one can see why. There is a high level of emphasis on ethics, integrity and accountability both when admitting new members or for sources of money. Financials of the organization are organized with utmost integrity and care. Volunteers work together as one family towards a common cause. While the organization is primarily based in San Jose there is a very active attempt to grow the organization beyond Bay area into Texas, East Coast, LA, Seattle and other areas.

Sankara Eye Foundation is like a huge family. We all work together for the cause of vision 20/20 by the year 2020. SEF regularly conducts various events in and around Bay area (California) and other parts of US too. These events help in raising funds for the organization and publicizing its cause. The events also helps the volunteers to develop team work, team management skills, contacts and exposure to lot of different new things. It gives lot of fun both to us and the public who attend these events. SEF is a well organized organisation where there is equality among all volunteers from the top level management to the fresh young volunteers.

Excellent organization dedicated to bringing light and sight to scores of people who cannot afford to even go to a hospital. The dedication of the volunteer is phenomenal. The outreach to remote places in India deserves special appreciation. Keep up the good work.
