Sankara already have a very sophisticated system in place for recording biodata on surgical recipients, but the missing link in this system is the ability to provide donors with real time feedback on the work they are supporting, which is crucial in securing funds for the work.
Snapstory is currently being used to record beneficiary case studies across all of Sankara's projects to one central database which can then be used to provide donors with feedback on the amazing work that is being done. Sankara's projects include Project Rainbow - a school screening program in which teacher volunteers are trained to do preliminary screenings on students - Gift of Vision, and their Vision Care Technician program, which provides opportunities to girls from lower socio-economic backgrounds to train for free to become Vision Care Technicians with a guaranteed job at one of Sankara's hospitals when they graduate.
This is Sangeetha, who is a beneficiary of Sankara Eye Foundation's incredible Vision Care Technician program, which she began in 2013.
Snapstory is being used by Sankara to share success stories across their projects, like that of Sangeetha's, who credits the Vision Care Technician program for giving her more confidence across all areas of her life.
