SANKARA EYE FOUNDATION USA
October 8, 2009
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.
