We were thriled to have witnessed many enthusiastic and supportive young people at all three schools we had partnered in their awareness improvement programme for clean environment", Mr. Manoranjan Sahoo commented whilst also crediting the active contribution from the team of "Action for Women Helpage and Awareness" (AWHAN), company volunteers, school managements and teaching personnel involved in the successful completion of the initiative.
