Every day, your support makes an essential difference around the world. In addition to transforming lives by restoring sight, your heartfelt donations help provide training for all levels of eye care workers – increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of eye care hospitals and improving long-term access to eye care for years to come.
Thanks to supporters like you, we launched a new in-depth training program at Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital, our partner in Delhi, India, in August 2020. Sixteen of their employees joined our year-long “Program on Quality and Excellence” to improve their leadership skills. Taught by Seva Foundation’s Global Training Specialist, Mr. Arun Acharya, the program features weekly three-hour online workshops. These workshops aim to improve participants’ communication skills, helping them develop stronger, more efficient business plans, and train them to promote high-quality care that is STEEEP: Safe, Timely, Effective, Efficient, Equitable, and Patient-centered. The program is currently on hold due to the Covid-19 situation in India. We will resume once it’s safe to do so.
Next year, we also plan to expand this course to over 100 Global Sight Initiative partner hospitals. Soon it will also be available as a self-paced online course. We are also exploring Spanish translations of this content for our partner hospitals in Latin America.
“We thank you and Seva for your commitment to education,” says Dr. Umang Mathur, Executive Director of Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital. “Seva has been outstanding in their support technically, intellectually, and through grants for improving education standards.”
Program of Quality & Excellence and STEEEP, are just a couple of examples of the impact of your donations. By investing in Seva, your kind support has a lasting transformative effect on the patients that are helped today and years into the future.
