We interacted with the chairperson of the organisation, who helped us to understand the core of the organisation in-depth. She mentioned various challenge she faces while running the NGO and asked for our consultant. It was great talking to her.
The best part of NGO visit was the interaction with the children. We talked to them, dance and sing along. They all were so talented and world best dances. We learnt a lot from these kids to be happy and love yourself, it doesn’t matter what is your situation. Just enjoy your life.
