The opportunity to share my thoughts about OPAD gives me immense pleasure. Having a realistic NGO struck me when I saw underprivileged children, who were deprived of basic needs such as education, nutrition, and health care. Within a short period of time, OPAD has accomplished tremendous things for underprivileged children...

It gives me immense pleasure to share my thoughts about OPAD. An idea for a realistic NGO struck me when I encountered underprivileged children without basic needs such as education, health care and nutrition. In a short duration, OPAD has made tremendous progress in uplifting underprivileged children. .
