Talking about the vision behind supporting this initiative Dr. H.P. Kumar – Chairman cum Managing Director of NSIC stated, “Working for the development of the less privileged has always been an important aspect of the way we function and work. Hence when Smile Foundation approached us with the concept of having an integrated development project, we immediately committed our support. With this project we are not focusing on just one aspect of development but are trying to address the major needs for sustainable development of the less privileged in the country. The focus on an all round and holistic development of the people is what is required to bring about sustainable development and this is the most special thing about this project. We are happy to have partnered with Smile Foundation and hope that with this partnership, we will be able to achieve our vision of bringing about growth and development of the less privileged.”
