It is my honor and privilege to be associated with such a fine organization that has been working tirelessly to help cure blindness in India with innovative programs and care facilities in various parts of India. It is amazing to see how within a decade Sankara has built state of the art hospitals in various parts of India and providing ongoing support to spread the eye care that is necessary, especially in rural parts of India. I am glad to be a donor to such a worthy cause.

I am from the same native place India where the SEF headoffice and prime action is taking place. Have been able to personally verify their extraordinary work to the poor, annual camps, free surgery for thousands. Really impressive and I am deeply moved by their selfless dedication and service. Looking forward to promote their services and their whole set up in every possible way in all corners of te world.

The Great!

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

In the state of Tamil Nadu, India, I have been witnessing the eye camps, referred lot of village poor people who needed eye surgery and have been very impressed with the out come. Same performance in other states of Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh also.

Ways to make it better...

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

Create more chapeters in all the major cities around the world and promote their activities in much bigger scale and spread their services across the globe.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Selfless dedication and vision to help the helpless, by the founders, the doctors and the whole team of SEF. The amount of satisfaction from the villagers who got the treatment is extraordinary.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

SEF has the larget dedicated team of volunteers in the SFO bay area charities that I know of. They are always ready and willing and commit any amount of time to help SEF and its activities.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

In that case, SEF can either set up one more hospital in one more backward poor rural area in India and also conduct free eye camps, offer free surgeries to hundreds of thousands of people and also come up with few mobile clinics to hel the rural area.

Ways to make it better...

If I had more time to get involved in promoting SEF activities and help them to raise more funds.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

FUNDS FUNDS and FUNDS

One thing I'd also say is that...

Any kind of medical equipments, mobile clinics can also be donoted to SEF apart from FUNDS.

The gift of vision is indeed marvelous! I have danced at the SEF Dandia at Santa Clara for several years. The volunteers are dedicated and sincere. They take time away from their busy lives to support this cause. I know that there is much cruelty in India and children are blinded by horrendous kidnappers. I hope this charity helps restore their vision and lives. Since you ask me to be candid, I should mention that my sister told me that she tried to get our maid treated for a cataract through SEF, but the wait list was too long and they were not very considerate. Eventually, she paid for it. Not sure if this was the red tape or simply supply vs. demand. She asked me not to discourage the volunteers by revealing this story. But, I think you can find justice if you speak up. I would still rate this one of the best nonprofits - many of my close friends are involved in this and I know they toil!

The Great!

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

The Dandiya dance

Ways to make it better...

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

1. Get volunteers to gather requirements (this should come pouring in). 2. Verify these requirements. 3. Allocate two independent sources to verify that the requirement was met in a reasonable time-line. 4. Provide a report for donations over 10K$

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The wonderful sense of teamwork, the dance, and the music.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated, sincere, and eager to give the gift of vision.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

1. Branch into other realms of medical aid. 2. Get more publicity and donation. 3. Help educate the illiterate about lack of hygiene and other causes of diseases. 4. Spread the gift of vision to many countries.

Ways to make it better...

I had positive proof from people in India that the organization helped them.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

A majority of the work is done in Gujarat - known for its money-making and fiscally-oriented community. I don't really know where my money is going.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Help the blind see - it's what Jesus did!
