“I have a deep respect for social causes and for peoples involved in making and shaping someone’s life more meaningful and liveable. Experiencing different social interventions and working with Labour Welfare projects I came across many opportunities where Govt. Machineries and NGOs can do much more innovatively and effectively. But welfare institutions are bounded by many influential factors and restrictions. I am very happy to be the teammate of MINDS Foundation because there is a freedom to work innovatively, usefully and effectively for the betterment of the poor, needy, deprived and helpless individuals at a very distinct level of dedication and caring efforts. Instead of providing some sort of small or big monetary or non-monetary welfare benefits, MINDS Foundation works and cares intensively for its people until they gets cured and live happily ever after within their community.”
