Review for Sankara Eye Foundation USA, Milpitas, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!

Review for Sankara Eye Foundation USA, Milpitas, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!

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

selfless volunteering and laser like execution - especially impressed with their professional objective of making every hospital they build self-sustainable within few years. A typical Pay-it-forward service!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
