Empowering Grassroots

Participant Speak

“I am attending the programme for the second time this year. I have come here with open mind to learn, share and gain knowledge from Smile Foundation and fellow participants. It was informative, well prepared, well thought of and very useful workshop, which everybody would implement to gain new heights in serving the less privileged.”

“It has been enriching I am even glad to be part of it. I have attended many workshops and programmes but the topics which Smile Foundation has covered were different and were as per the need of the small NGOs.”

“Everybody has information about what to do; but where and how to do were what I have learned here. The session on Accountability and Transparency has been engaging and enriching.”

“As the name empowering grassroots defines, the programme is made for NGOs like us. We have learned new and advanced things on how to present and document our work in a better way.”

“I would like to congratulate Smile Foundation for providing us a platform where we can learn and adapt new things in a fast changing scenario. It was well prepared and rightly designed. The innovative methods on brand communication and ethical fundraising were very inspiring. I will implement all the methods that I learned here.”
