And promote a society of more understanding to make this world truly liveable.” Amanda Obdam appreciated the launch of an application that promotes what she truly believes in and was happy to be a part of the launch. In addition to the launch of the application, it is also open to good listener volunteers.
Amanda’s campaign, “Have you listened?” relates to the SATI mobile app’s goal as she wants to create a platform where she can emphasize the importance of listening and urge everyone to understand that the act of listening should be adapted by everyone as an essential part of one’s life.
