Greetings from Project Puthri

Happy July to all our readers!

Volunteers are very special to us, they Mentor, Guide, share their knowledge, and spend their precious time with our beloved Puthris. Our Vision of enabling every Puthri to become Career Intentional is fulfilled by our dynamic Volunteers. They tirelessly co-ordinate with schools, deliver the mentoring sessions to the Puthris and contribute towards developing extraordinary Content for creating Life skills modules. Through this issue we commend and applaud the efforts of all our revered Volunteers for their remarkable commitment shown towards the development of the Puthris. We express our gratitude to all the volunteers and greatly desire to receive their continued support and cooperation.
