  • ICH-NGO is doing good job of extending guidance and assistance to newly registered and accredited NGO of different regions.
    H.V.P.Mandal India will like to be associated with this voluntary organization. We have glorious history of 100 years in the field of traditional physical culture, sports and games; but we do need experience of working with the world body UNESCO. Hope, we shall get good exposure in this direction. Also, we can share our expertise in the field of TSG. Let us join hands to work for the attainment of the objectives of UNESCO.. With all good luck and best wishes. Please keep us on your mailing list.
