Mincy Lakhmani,,,,,, Awesome volunteer and committed Health Advocate
“I have been fortunate enough to volunteer at NADA INDIA FOUNDATION  and this experience really stood out as one of the best! The variety of the projects was a real plus point for me as I got to know different issues in area of health among variety of groups. Working out with Mr.Aflilaash at different de-addiction centers and with Mr.DevenderJoti at DRUG USE & HOMELESS:PEER COUNSELLOR facilitating  GROUP,which was wonderful. What I most appreciated was how friendly and open the people were during the sessions. 
Also,learning research methodology at YOUNG INDIA NETWORK FOR GOOD HEALTH on HEALTH NEEDS was a great experience.Finally, I can say I got the practical exposure of what I’ve learned from textbooks. Preparing questionnaire and taking surveys was challenging yet successful under guidance of Mr.SuneelVatsyayan, a special mention has to go to him ,he was so patient and welcoming. And most importantly, a great mentor!”
