I have always wanted to make a difference. Growing up in India, I saw first hand how poverty can have catastrophic effects on individuals and their families and I vowed one day to make a difference.
My philanthropic endeavours have always involved a pioneering aspect at the core. The more recent organisation that I am involved in is the Tej Kohli and Ruit Foundation. Co-founded by myself and 'God of Sight' Dr Sanduk Ruit, together we have travelled to remote districts in low income countries and cure thousands of needless cataract blindness.
Our achievements thus far are something I am very proud of. Making a direct intervention into communities through boosting eye care has the potential to decrease extreme poverty in those areas. With more people gaining their sight back, there are more people that can go to work and earn a living for their families. We hope that we can contribute to ending global extreme poverty and leave a legacy of change in the places we visit.
