Creating awareness about an NGO is one of the key areas to get more people involved.
To this effect, Volunteers and students of VSM are always eager to take VSM to the masses, at the slightest opportunity.
The purpose is to spread word about our NGO and its working.
Participation in the following events was an apt example of the same.
VSM Stall at Vile Parle
The event was organised by Lokmanya Seva Sangh ,Vile Parle on 4th and 5th Feb. 2017. It was related to seminars on NGO activities and issues. The Guest of honor was Mr. Savate, the Charity Commissioner who briefed us about the rules and regulations governing NGOs.
VSM was represented by some of its volunteers and students. The visitors attending our stall where explained about VSM, our objective, working and also about our long-term goals. More than a hundred people visited our stall, with many expressing genuine interest in joining or knowing more about VSM.
Although our primary purpose was to spread the word, we did receive a lot of on the spot donation.
