, two groups of like minded people coming from different professional backgrounds, joined hands to provide ophthalmic care to the needy poor, mostly tribals, in Dhule and Nandurbar districts, which together contain a population of more than 49% tribal people.

Both the groups are registered as charities with the Charity Commissioner of Maharashtra . They are also separately registered with the Ministry of Home Affairs under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA).
