" The platform obtained will help me reach out to a larger number of children/students, which is onerous in current circumstances where physically contacting children and NGOs is not feasible.
Mother Teresa has rightly said, "None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful." Backing this huge name will provide me with a bigger forum to reach other like-minded enthusiasts and philanthropists, and take a lead to start a chain to make a ripple effect together and make a huge impact on a larger scale.
