The plan, still amorphous as it would seem, involves the deepest, most authentic feelings of simply "doing good" for humanity. The altruism is so evident from the fact that the establishment and execution of a noble cause overshadows all prior notions of well being and doing of the unit involved herein. An independently undertaken venture, well thought of and nurtured, by an organization which believes that it can bring about a positive change, requires an undying and grateful support of all those people who are a part of and hence will be subjected to this cogent difference which is to be brought about very soon. Against all odds, what will take place is going to be like a laborious journey to a land of eternal amelioration.[4]
