April Round Up

April was one of the busiest yet the most eventful month at SOS India. While some children let lose their creative juices through an art workshop on alternative art mediums, others brought laurels in the field of sports and made us prouder than ever! Moreover, corporate collaborations and eminent village visits were also a highlight, making the month even more exciting for all SOS India Co-workers!! Click here to read more.
