“Also, I have learnt that the need of meaningful feedback mechanism is vital to any program”, added Yogendra Chitrakar from ECCA.

WASH team also visited a project school of ENPHO and ENPHO office itself to gain more information regarding a fellow organization’s contribution to WASH.

With finance team also experiencing intensive sessions on efficient accounting, the workshop concluded with positive vibes blooming within the participants.
