Life MemberSpeak - Testimonials

"My father was the founder director of the Mysore training centre and after he passed away I have continued the association. In any kind of association with a social cause, everything depends on how one relates to it and how the other person reciprocates it. In the case of NAB, many of my family members have been involved with it and I have had a long and close association with it. So I have seen it grow over the years. Once in Bangalore I saw a visually challenged person cross the road and when I talked to him, he told me that he had received training at the NAB, Mysore. So it felt good to see that the organization was making a difference to people's lives. I just want the NAB work to be more visible so people are made aware about it"

- Narasimha Prasad, Chartered Accountant, UB Group, Bangalore

"I always wanted to do something for others and I think the visually challenged in particular need more support. Over 30 years ago my bank was already associated with the NAB and personally even I wanted to be part of it and that's how I got involved. Over the years I used to get updated on all that was happening at the NAB and I was very happy to see that it was doing a lot of good things."

- Balram, Retired Bank Officer

"I strongly feel that visually disabled persons more than anyone else need the strongest support both, in terms of rehabilitation and general motivation. I have been associated with NAB over the years and have been fortunate to spend time with the students from time to time. I think NAB is a well-established organization that responds well to initiatives or volunteers. I have had the good fortune to have organized a few events for the students to showcase their talent with NAB's help. NAB can reach out more proactively to individuals and organizations both for financial support and employment opportunities by organizing events in organizations and residential colonies to showcase talent, highlight needs and seek support."

- Venugopal Koka

"We have been associated with the NAB -Karnataka for over 25 years now and it is part of our focus on the cause of the disabled. When we look at all the programmes that Rotary is involved with, the NAB programmes are the ones for which maximum number of Rotarians are usually present. That itself says a lot."

- Narendra Babu, Businessman, President - Rotary Club, Mid-Town, Mysore

"Before starting any project we do a study on the requirements and accordingly set targets. As far as NAB Karnataka is concerned, our expectations have certainly been met. They are making good progress with respect to their plans of helping the visually challenged."

- Kishore Govind, CFO and Company Secretary, San Engineering

"It is very satisfying for us to see the work that NAB is doing."
