Donor Testimonial

We chose to partner with KHUSHII as their proposal was very practical and
covered both parents /school and the children themselves. We find that
our confidence was not misplaced and the quarterly reports tell us the
progress and the way the money is spent. We would love to continue
to partner with KHUSHII for future projects too.“Inflow has partnered with KHUSHII from 2021 for their Shikshantaara Plus program. The proposal was well
thought out and we had personally seen our housekeeping and
security staff personnel kids losing out on education and then finding
it difficult to cope with being back in school due to pandemic. So this
cause was very relevant and close to us and as an organisation we
wanted to work in this sector.
