Donor Testimonials

ONGC had a very nice experience, partnering with Swades Foundation in implementing the water infrastructure development project in Raigad District. Swades has an excellent mechanism when it comes to achieving project timelines, submitting reports and responding to our queries . We were pleasantly surprised when Swades informed us that the project was completed at a much lesser budget than what was approved.
