The year 2016 has been a good year with lots of corporate social activities and technical projects undertaken by Bestlife. One of the major step that Bestlife has taken is in the field of Digitisation of Non-Governmental-Organisations, Social Enterprises and Educational institutions of the region.
The first step taken towards Digitisation project was giving free websites, domains and hosting to the social organisations who are working in area for the upliftment of people. This was to boost their presence and make people know the good work. Here is one among all the other projects whom Bestlife has contributed.
Child Friendly Guwahati is a project initiated under Snehalaya with the support of Child Aid Network and Kindermissionwerk in the year 2013. It was started with a Pilot Phase of 5 Motivational Centers in August 2013 under the leadership of Fr. Denis Solomon- Director and Br.
