Feedback from the members of the Post Office-

Postman Mr. Butuk said, “It’s a very nice initiative taken by this Organization and Project for beneficiaries to conduct an exposure visit in Government services as every citizen of India should be aware of them. Post is very honest and works hard for the people. Post office; it’s not about only writing letters and money orders but there are several services where you can take benefits. I can suggest that by this activity Mumbai Smiles made you aware you and now you should spread this information in communities, to your friends as well. Because now days people don’t know the postman, Post services, post office address etc. Thanks to Mumbai Smiles for this Exposure Visit. It’s nice initiatives for girls who living in underprivileged communities”
