I am very much impressed by the activities of Indian Development Foundation. I have also participated in the resource mobilisation drive of IDF to support the poor and the needy. I am happy to become the young social ambassador of IDF and promote the activities for humanitarian benefit, these were the words of Ameya Borwankar when he was inducted as IDF young social ambassador in Mumbai on 1st Jan.09
Ameya Borwankar is the student of Vivek Vidyalaya, Goregaon (W), Mumbai studying in class VI. Ameya has participated in many social events and also scientific sessions at a young age. I have been seeing the activities of the IDF young social ambassadors like Karan, Shankersai, Nishchit and Shiloh. It is really commendable on their part and i thought i too can be part of the Foundation and help the needy people during my spare time.
Becoming IDF social ambassador and reaching out the underprivileged children is one of my New Year resolution, said the eleven year old boy with a smile. I am good at chess and computer. I can teach the children in Vimala Centre and other projects of IDF during Sundays and other holidays.
