And anyone and everyone in this state of mind connects to Sunaayy and becomes a part of it.
Sunaayy Foundation, though a non-profit organization to the world, is not just about one person or a group of people that runs on a set of rules eventually wanting to give back to society.
We give only a fraction, but what we get back is in multitude. It is about the sensitivity in us, a drive from within that hits our conscience at some point in time making us give to our fellow beings and in this case caring for our own children. This is what forms the CORE of Sunaayy, a virtually close-knit group of members spanning the entire globe. And anyone and everyone in this state of mind may connect to Sunaayy and be a part of it.
Identical ideas may originate from multiple minds but there is always one person or a couple of them who take the ownership to transform it to a reality. Sunaayy started off in a similar manner when its founder members set the ball rolling in 2009. With time, many friends joined, some extended support to help the concept grow. Over the years, the family kept growing, even people joined from across the world and that helped Sunaayy take a firm shape.
