Review for Sphoorti Foundation, Hyderabad, , India

Rating: 5 stars  

Looks like "Whoever steps into this temple, make them feel like God :)" is the motto of Sphoorti. I truly felt that way when I stepped into Sphoorti 4 months ago.

I read somewhere that money can never make people work the way you want...only inspiring them to love their work would do miracles . The facility was kept so clean that I can see everyone who works there thinks of Sphoorti as their own home....Kids are happy, running around, bubbly and ofcourse kid-like :)....

The excitement in every kid was contagious. It's like disney world of Hyderabad :).... Magic just happens there and angels fly around giggling, playing, smiling and laughing....that's how my first and later experiences were....The teenage girls seem to know what they want to become when they grow up...they were prompt in answering ..may be it's the most asked question to them....or they just dream more..:)...I can't tell...

I remember watchman "Lakshmaih" saying Namaskaram everytime we met...It left a very memorable impression on my mind...He is elderly and yet he is so humbling....I in turn folded my hands and it felt good for doing that outside a temple a person...The forgotten basics are just a norm at Sphoorti ...

There is humility...there is mischief...there is joy...there is discipline.....there is serenity.....and the whole area around Sphoorti is filled with one word..."LIFE".... It's like a healing center to any lost soul..... it's a destiny to many celebrating's a's a temple's's an inspiration to many.. :)...

Thank you Srivyal for creating this wonderful place on this earth.... It's like a reminder to rest of us how a beautiful breathing world should be...Blessed are U and..Blessed are the people at Sphoorti.....World is yet to see some of the best citizens of this nation :)..

Review for Sphoorti Foundation, Hyderabad, , India

Rating: 5 stars  

How can you not visit an NGO or see a face in person and still be inspired to reach out? How great is that foundation, which inspires thousands of people around the world by its deeds and not words alone..?? I had heard a lot of great things about Sphoorti….and finally started doing some research and learning more about the organization. Initially I thought it was like any other NGO providing shelter and education to underprivileged kids.... Great!!! But is this enough to get inspired? At least it was not to me knowing there were a thousand other organizations I can choose to donate my time and money to.

I started following Sphoorti on Facebook and as I scrolled through the pictures, one astonishing thing stood out... The happiness that is reflected in the eyes of these innocent kids. There was no sadness anywhere in those pictures except in my heart when I opened the album. I was expecting to see some sad faces but NO!! …. The pictures made me smile in return.. For the very first time, I understood the meaning of pure joy…:)

The little kids are happy because they live in a home with a family atmosphere and not in an orphanage. The dreams in their eyes promise that there is still so much more happiness left in this world and yet to come their way in spite of the less than ideal circumstances. Someone said “Children are love made visible”. Is there any other way for us than to embrace and nourish our children for a better tomorrow that we all dream of...?? From that moment, it was an easy choice for me to support the Sphoorti Foundation. I commend Srivyal Vuyyuri, founder of Sphoorti who is carrying this torch for the kids and all the supporters of this foundation.

Everyone says…”When you visit Sphoorti, Kids are great and the feeling of joy is overwhelming….” I can’t wait to experience that great feeling and own one of those moments pretty soon :)
