Why Volunteer : I believe that a girl educated is a family educated. I've always had the desire to help the underprivileged children in India & Small Steps Foundation has very minimum admin costs, so the donations go to deserving children everytime.
As companies are getting ready to reconcile with their targeted calendar donations, this is a refresher from Reena's workshop on how to request corporate donations:
All the executives met on November 13th and presented their functional area to discuss the plan for next six months, immediate backup and team and frequency of team meetings.
The Project team is working very actively in doing the due diligence for project selection and approval. They are also evaluating the options of setting up some way of transitioning the raised funds smoothly from here to our well deserving projects/schools in India.
The executive team also took the time to recognize all the new volunteers and thank the existing volunteers for a successful 2011!!!!
