“SVP’s national focus on making a dent in poverty through catalysing livelihoods at the bottom of the pyramid inspired me to join the organisation. This is one such organisation that provides us with the opportunity to help people at the grassroots level that could further inculcate a change in society. SVP’s focus on sponsoring projects for the low-income segment gives us hope that if we all hold hands, we can definitely bring about change in the lives of people and smiles on the faces of those in need.”
