AFNA is undoubtedly doing a great job in Assam. I have many experiences with the projects thru AFNA.

In March 2014 , AFNA donated matric guide to below poverty line(BPL) students in Assam. Those students appeared for matric this year. I got in touch of few students and they mentioned how the book helped them for the exam. I , myself thank to AFNA and happy to be part of the team.We need more solicitors to encourage such programs in future.In Assam books donation program, scholarships program to BPL students are very much useful to those students who cant afford it and AFNA has done great job to help those students.

AFNA is also supporting disabled persons to train them and sustain their life thru SWABALAMBI, a non-profit organizations for disabled. AFNA sponsored scholarships to disabled students to lead their life and achieve their goals.

There are many moments in my life only due to one reason: because I have the good fortune to find wonderful organizations like Assam Foundation of North America (AFNA) to volunteer for. Volunteering at AFNA has given me the opportunity to interact with SHED, Parijat Academy, Rural Volunteers Centre (RVC), Centre for Rural Development (CRD), Atma Nirbhar Ek Challenge, Tapovan, and other noble efforts in Assam, all of which are helping underprivileged people break out of poverty and realize their potential.
In addition to loving these moments, how do I benefit from volunteering in organizations like AFNA?
Three things:
- It gives me a shared purpose with other volunteers in North America and beyond who believe in being service to help others realize their potential
- It helps me sharpen and share skills and build experience while contributing to a good cause
- It gives me the chance to meet inspiring people who lead projects on the ground in Assam and other locations
In case you haven’t already figured it out, I love these moments of volunteering!
