Here is some feedback from delegates at various forums: 

It was so refreshing to have such an out of the box presentation after having attended so many mundane and systematic workshops. I really mean it I had attended so many of them!
1. It was very innovative,
2. It made us think differently,
3. I liked the concept of “getting to feel for the cause, actually getting attached to the cause and not merely funding! Just like that without knowing the work”. This helps in gaining partners for future not necessarily MONEY!
Anjali Chaudhry, Advocacy Coordinator

This is brilliant. Just the stuff one needs.
