Dear All,
We are happy to inform that all permanent centres in India will be given 3 free bursaries (1 Director + 2 Volunteers) for the conference and for probationary centres 2 free bursaries. The bursaries will include boarding, lodging and conference cost.
The Office bearers of Befrienders India i.e. The President, The Secretary and the Treasurer will also be given a free bursary.
While we are making all efforts to keep the cost at a minimum ,those who are not given bursaries will have to pay Rs.4000/- per person on a double occupancy basis. (this includes the boarding, lodging,transportation and other conference cost). If single occupancy is required, it will be necessary to pay extra.
