I am excited to collaborate with them as Awaaz De accelerates its efforts to make a positive impact on communities worldwide, with a particular emphasis on the development sector.”

Neil Patel, CEO, Awaaz De on raising this investment, said, “These are exciting times for Awaaz.De as we grow and diversify our customer base in India and abroad, collaborating with like-minded organizations and leveraging our expertise and the immense potential of ICTs for social impact. Awaaz De values the support we receive from our investors, well-wishers and friends.”
