Divyajyoti Trust is a registered charitable trust under Public Charitable Trust Act established recently by philanthropic minded individuals involved in the services of poor people for last two decades. Having imbibed the ideas and ideals suggested by Gandhiji to serve the nation, they have decided to devote their life to the service of humanity in interior rural tribal areas. Joined by several like minded people, trust will get involved in all the activities to help the poor community with the help of available manpower & resources.

Since the main expertise available at this moment is in the field of Ophthalmology, the trust will start working in eye care by setting up an eye hospital.

  • For almost three weeks during this month, we did not get to see sunlight. It was raining continuously. The work did slow down to some extent because of that.

  • Dr. Sheetal operated her own mother during the month. This shows her confidence level. We are proud of our two senior doctors – Dr. Sheetal and Dr. Rohan.

  • Dr. Rajesh Kapse and Ms. Mita Shree Dutta from H. V. Desai eye hospital, Pune were here for three days to kick start our preparations for NABH entry level accreditation. They helped us form various committees and form various guidelines. We are looking at applying for entry level NABH accreditation within three months time.

  • Optometry students have completed second semester with flying colours. They were given a vacation of two weeks. This year, we have decided to keep management quota seats with ourselves and have already given admission to 14 students directly. Hopefully, this year, there will be good number of students joining the programme.
  • Pradeep Patel had gone to Aravind Eye Hospital Madurai for one week during the month to understand their publicity system.

  • New batch of vision technician and ophthalmic nurses have joined the training programme. There are 9 vision technician students and 2 ophthalmic nursing students. Somehow, because the vision technicians are getting better salaries, the students are going more for that course, there are only two boys – all the rest are females and still they want to pursue vision technician course and are willing to go to Surat for jobs later.
  • Dr. Akshat Shah attended lamellar keratoplasty workshop in Ahmedabad during the month.
  • The workload was comparable with last month inspite of rains. We have added a sweeper staff in the team at Vyara. The nursing student who was to join Vyara centre from July, for some unknown reason decided to go to Surat for job. We have shifted one of our nursing staff from that area to work at Vyara centre.
