From The Secretarial Desk

I am very glad to introduce KMM OPTOMETRY & EYE INSTITUTE which is conducted by Shri Satchandi Jankalyan Samiti (SSJKS). SSJKS is a leading Non-Government organization working in hilly areas of Uttarakhand. Society is working for development of health care and technical education. Society has conducted many health and eye screening program in rural region of Uttarakhand. Today, also I remember other day, why we thought for opening Optometry College, when we realize the lack of eye care services while conducting eye screening program at remote areas. Then we came to know about the situation of lack in eye care delivery at Uttarakhand. Today only 13% populations of Uttarakhand have access to eye care services this is only because of lack of optometry professional. This was the situation because there was no optometry teaching institution in Uttarakhand. Hence we thought of creating optometrist by opening first School of Optometry in Uttarakhand.

Once we have started Diploma in Optometry many local people understood the importance of optometry education and they donated 2 acres of land at Pauri Garhwal for construction of School of Optometry. Following that Govt. of Uttarakhand also come forward and gave us donation of 10 lakhs ($20,000), a patient transport ambulance and promised for further support.

Today, society is leading NGO working in Eye care delivery. Society is registered under society registration act 1860. Any donation to society will have income tax exemption under section 80G. Moreover society is also registered under FCRA (Foreign Currency Regulatory Act) hence, now eligible for receiving foreign contribution also.

Society want to construct own infrastructure for School of optometry at donated land so this help in reducing the avoidable Blindness. Hence, society seeking grant for capital investment in developing a School of Optometry which will results in production of quality eye care personnel. This will be a small step in preventing avoidable blindness.
