The members gather and organize some event so that they can raise funds through contributions and tie ups etc. While speaking exclusively with Nagpur Today, some of the members of the executive body of Nagpur Round Table 83 said that every member does his part in raising funds. Some of them though are not so mobile and can’t leave the house too raise funds from their homes and ensure that funds are made available for the noble cause. The members display a passion for building class-rooms and do not compromise on quality of the work.
