Since joining as a volunteer for Sri Om foundation back in 2006, I have seen the organisation grow from strength to strength. Pillars of success are the numerous volunteers and staff who tirelessly work day and night to care for those in need.
Sri Om started with few volunteers which we have seen exponentially grow over the years. The driving force behind our success has been the motivation and strong leadership of our Chairperson and President, who have dedicated their lives to servicing the community. It is these quality traits and attributes they have, that I develop and educate those within the organisation through training, workshops, coaching and mentoring.
