Giving Sight to the Blind: How the Tej Kohli Foundation is Doing It

Giving Monetary Grants to High-Need Regions

Kohli has backed up his promises in action through his Tej Kohli foundation. They provide monetary grants to Niramaya, a Gurgaon based NGO, in an effort to offset the cost of corneal transplants. But the grants don’t go exclusively to Gurgaeon; additional grants are received by every additional city in India to which his blindness intervention program expands. Due in great measure to Tej Kohli’s innovative humanitarian outreach program, Indian health experts predict that tens of thousands of visually impaired and blind children and adults in India will regain their sight.

The Foundation further supports their founder in the following note, “Kohli is an international businessman and philanthropist, with a diverse portfolio of commercial and charitable operations in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and India. His business interests range from e-commerce and IT, to real estate and reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. The programs of Kohli foundation are comprised of passionate people committed to addressing the critical needs of young people in India, Costa Rica and beyond. By inspiring communities, states and nations, by motivating individuals and institutions, by supporting local leaders with programs and facilities at community level, we will make a difference in the lives of millions of children.“
