What People
Say About Us

After visiting Suhit Jeevan Trust I found that it is a heaven on Earth, the same positive vibrations I felt which I had observed while visiting our Golden Temple at Amritsar. Bafna Group salutes the Suhit Jeevan Trust from their core of Heart, for the services that they are contributing to the children and for the society, hats off.

Pritpal Singh Bedi

Today, on 31st July 2013, we were very blessed to come to your organization. Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl. And complimenting him is beyond the reach of a small artist like me. They are all doing a great job. And this is the prayer to God that may the children be ready while learning with us and grow stronger. Congratulations to all of you once again.

Devendra Shelar

It’s really my pleasure, that I am here to see all these amazing things, May God bless all who are doing this great job.

Vikrant Desai

The head of the organization, Dr. Surekha Patil Ma'am, and the work started by her is inspiring and admirable. For these special children in rural areas, the work of the organization, and the progress of the children is very commendable, especially the skill of the special kids making various products is unmatched by many artists. My best wishes to the organization's building construction and expansion project. This work will also come to fruition soon.

Rajesh Narvekar (Chief Executive Officer, Zilla Parishad Raigad.)

All the efforts that you’ve put in are beautiful. Your work is so inspiring. I wish all the luck and happiness to everyone here.

Dr. A.N. Harshvardhan (Regional officer MPCB, Raigad District)

“Je ka ranjale gaanjale, tyaasi mhane jo apulen, Tochi saadhu olakhaawa, dev tethenchi jaanaawa!!” These statements came true. These students performed beautiful programs. Which, of course, made the video an overnight sensation. Congratulations to Madam Patil and her entire team. Thank you very much. You are trying to bring such elements of society into the mainstream. Hats off to your entire team again for that.
