10) Who are the people behind this concept of @tfcnepal ? 

@tfcNepal is a social media initiative without formal structure. Four of Twitter users came up with the idea, and it’s possible because of each and everyone who have contributed to its causes. As a need of a platform to share our opinions views and solutions regarding bringing smiles in the faces, we came out with an idea of establising a platform where we don't only share our recent issues and gossips but also a social venue if we can bring smiles in the faces of some deprived societies around us.

All of us are the volunteers of the group and we share ideas on how can we bring smiles in the faces.
