Experiences of two volunteers

It was really a wonderful experience.At the end of day I felt satisfied and happy, As I had worked for some good cause apart from that all the team members are very supportive and zealous :). Even in near future  I would like to be a part of such kind of projects. My  sincere thanks to YFS which gives me such a good platform  to serve the needful children.
