A PROJECT OF FOCUS-HYDERABAD
Dear NITW Alumni,
NITW (formerly known as RECW) Americas chapter, a USA registered 510c3 non profit organization, aims to bring it’s alumni together for enhanced collaboration and networking. As a part of overall networking activity, NITW Americas chapter decided to involve in local outreach programs. Since many of our NITW alumni in US and across globe are ALREADY contributing to Sankara Eye Foundation (SEF) outside of this fundraiser , we thought it is good to bring all your contributions through single channel so that it reflects bigger.
NITW (RECW) Americas chapter [https://nitwamericas.org/] decided to give back to the community by involving our alumni in this noble cause.
India is home to the largest number of visually impaired people in the world, a staggering 55 million. 80% of this blindness, however, is curable. Sankara Eye Foundation’s (SEF) mission is to eradicate curable blindness by providing free eye care to the needy. Since inception, SEF has performed over 1.6 million free eye surgeries. The gift of vision is quite possibly the greatest gift one can give or receive. NITWA chapter believes that you will join this great movement of giving gift of lights by helping SEF – Hyderabad hospital.
