“I am joining basically to learn from peers new methods of executing projects and share ideas, and also to make necessary connection which will help me widen the horizon of my impact. I do what I do because it is rampant in this part of the world seeing people coming down with communicable diseases which they could have prevented themselves from if they have got information about in the first place, and also low income people often find it difficult to afford hospital bill which has led to death in many cases.”
