"Indeed the experience was enriching. Local fund raising example in Communication and Brand Building for Sustainability session by Mr. Suman Srivastava was inspiring. Enjoyed the video clips, etc. We learned about Brand promotion and advertisement, which would be helpful for us to promote our NGOs. Also the Good Governance for Organizational Development and strengthening session was very motivational. The examples given were very good and its practical application would help us understand the roles and responsibilities of each individual at every level. Thus assist us in smooth functioning of an organization.”
