I have worked with many organizations offering the same type of assistance as Good News India and I find this organization to be exceptional in its devotion to these less fortunate ones. They provide comprehensive life care including completion of a college education for its student benefactors. This has a profound preventive impact in the area of human trafficking as well as a future impact for the socioeconomic development of each individual being helped by this organization. My professional meetings with Dr. Rahman have always exceeded my expectations in professionalism and personal selflessness in his dedication to those who are hopelessly trapped in poverty. I would highly recommend Good News India as an effective and transformative NGO for your donations.
