Sankara Eye Foundation has been doing phenomenal work to strive towards eradicating curable blindness in all of India. It has been an honor to support an organization that is totally committed to providing the best eye care to the most needy.
I have recently joined the SEF Tri-State N.J. Chapter and have found the experience very rewarding. My first volunteering experience was running the SEF booth in the India day parade. I met a lot of people and was able to share our mission. I found that once people know our mission they readily contibuted towards our goal. For our second event I was more involved and became a core team member for the event. Or was one of the first kind in NJ and we were able to pull it off beautifully. I am very proud to be part of this organization that is focused on such a noble cause.
Shankara Eye Foundation has been doing an excellent work providing free eye care to millions of people who otherwise would have gone without sight. A small donation of $30 can give a huge gift of eye sight to an unfortunate soul. Please donate as often as you can.
Sankara eye foundation is one of the renowned and well known eye care hospital in India. They provide excellent service and very good treatment to patients with advanced technology. The infrastructure of the hospital is good. The hospital is well maintained and hygienic.
Wonderful job by Sankara eye foundation which provides the help for the poor and needy people in India. I wish you keep doing the good work.
A fluke interaction with a Sankara volunteer about 10 years ago was the beginning of a wonderful association. It is rare to find a more dedicated group of folks who are really working for the betterment of our organization.
Give generously, knowing that all funds are stretched to the max.
We are always willing to answer questions and provide information requested.
Come and join the Sankara Family.
Being in India, I see their service to the blind and they are making the Hospitals self sustaining. This non profit is the best help for the blind poor Indians.
I have been tracking Sankara Eye Foundation for quite sometime now because I first felt they were trying to imitate SankaraNethrayala and get some mileage out ot it. But I realised this was a highly motivated and dedicated team out to eradicate blindness all over India. I was there at their Bangalore Hospital inaguration and they have a concrete plan to open new hospitals almost every six months and make it self sustaining in a few years and at the same time serving the poorest of the poor with international quality eye care.Hats off to the team.
A great organization led by passionate volunteers to eradicate blindness of the poor in India. 20 hospitals by 2020 - crossed half the distance in less than 10 years! A remarkable achievement in deed! The beauty of the approach by SEF is creating accountability by the recipient hospitals to be self sufficient within 5 years of operation by balancing paying clients with charity effort. A novel charity effort with accountability!
I have witnessed first hand the dedicated service by Sankara Eye Foundation, USA and it's counterapart in Coimbatore. They not only have the vision (20/20 by 2020), but orhganizational ability to flawlessly execute that vision. It can easily be compared to Gates Foundation in terms of its laser like focus in dedicattion and service. With strong support of the volunteers, I can clearly see the day when they will have one hospital in every state and complete a million surgeries in India!
SEF doing a wonderful job by providing the free eye surgeries in India. They have opened new hospitals and facilities, covering wider parts of India. We have a plan to open 20 hospitals by end of 2020. I am proud to be assoicated with SEF.
SEF is an outstanding organization with true passion to eradicate blindness in India by year 2020. Working for this organization has been fun, fulfilling and rewarding.
SEF have the great vision of achieving vision of 20/20 for every person struggling with their blindness in india by year 2020. I have been involved in organizing some of the event for SEF at Detroit, Michigan. It has been quite satisfying to know that you are working for Non Profit Organization which does so many great things. What i like most about SEF, is that they have united the people of all religion, caste and state to one common cause - remove blindness by year 2020. I also feel that they have outstanding management and administrative team who work hard to make sure that every dollar is spent wisely.
Susan from S.E.F. was amazing.... not only was she super informative, she turned me on to www.fixmybadcreditreports.com which was a lifesavor. Thank you Susan!!!
Review from CharityNavigator
I am Sandhya Ashwini Kumar I belong to a Charitable Organisation called the Ladies Circle India and have been involved with Sankara Eye Care Hospital in Bangalore in their Project "Nanna Kannu" .Our Project Vision has been made successful because of this.They have helped us get eye care in the true sense across to the economically backward community by conducting free eye camps in the schools associated with us and funded by us.
My husband had recently participated in the SEF's half marathon and I did assist with filling water in the cups for the runners for some time. It was a great experience and felt good at heart to offer such help to the runners and to the organization as well. Kudos to the Organization as well as the people who run it & who devote their time ,energy and money to organize such events, wherein such monetary benefits goes to the poor and the needy. Most of all, we should be proud to be associated with such an organization who helps someone to see the world!!
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.
SEF USA has advanced the cause of curable blindness all over India through creative fundraising efforts in the US, and raising awareness through programs around the world. In little over 10 years they have really made a name for the organization and the cause.
A warm welcome given by clean environment & beatiful trees,nice care taking staff and treatment given with latest equipments at an afforable cost by all the people
I have send a poor women from my village for her eye problem . she was received well and after checking she was given proper treatment and glasses free of cost. she was quiet old and very glad to see the world clearly again.
Fantastic organization with a remarkably effective model that deploys funds in an incredibly efficient and effective manner. The volunteers are incredible in their dedication and passion.
i have been involved with SEF for the past 6 years.i am associated with sankara eye hospital shimoga,INDIA.the institution caters to poorest of poor for the past one year,earlier we were sending needy patients to coimbatore.they were treated totally free.
A very dynamic organisation with great leadership from the chairperson that motivates and inspires the rest of the team and volunteers.
I have worked with SANKARA EYE FOUNDATION (SEF) USA. I decided to become a volunteer for SEF only after knowing their charity work. I have worked with other volunteers to organized a charity event. I felt the enthusiaum and energy in all. I felt thier desire to help needy. It was an incredible experience working with SEF.
One of the best non-profits organization I have experienced. I (unfortunately due to time constraint) cannot volunteer with them but I do attend many of their events (fund raising). What I like about this organization is the low overhead. Most of my $$ goes to the right cause. This is possible with dedicated force of volunteers. The cause is very noble. "Eye sight" being very much integral part of a life and that is what they attempt to restore.
