The Sankara Nethralaya OM Trust as part of its ongoing efforts towards reaching out and educating the public on Sankara Nethralaya and its mission and objectives and raising funds in the USA for its community ophthalmology initiatives in India, sponsored the immensely popular inter-collegiate dance competition organized by MAYURI on the 1st of March 2014 at the University of Maryland HOFF Theater. The performances were of a very high order and the entire event was organized most professionally. The event helped the Sankara Nethralaya OM Trust to reach out to a gathering of more than 400 people comprising students from John Hopkins, Rutgers, UT, Georgia Tech, Tuft, University of Pitts, Emory and the College of NJ, their friends and family members. The SN OM Trust booth registered good footfall and the visitors were given a detailed account about Sankara Nethralaya, its philosophy, goals and objectives, role of the SN OM Trust after which an appeal for financial assistance was made. The collateral materials displayed at the venue, the detailed video presentation and a brief talk by Shri S.V Acharya, Founder & President, Sankara Nethralaya OM Trust played a major role in the visitors getting a firsthand knowledge about the institution and its march towards Banishing blindness.
