FINALLY... back on "hyderabad community service" !!:)
im surprised to c so many posts on this thread... saurabh_surveketanmIllusionforevervkris81nalvazirda1Dreamchaserjunaid_mohammedprasannakumarHobbesPratsyManishaRaviShameek aka arboreal tarantula
are all in for some action on the HCS front.
some more ppl will join once we have something concrete..
we can proly start immediately if we go to MVF and c if they can accomodate us somewhere... one thing we need to keep in mind is that we need to keep in touch with them.. coz this is where there is miscommunication.. we call n we work.. (thats commitment i guess
ravi said MVF has an anti child marriage drive.. proly we can chip in:grab:
also..for those who havent got the chance to know abt MVF... i suggest u try n make it to a weekend trip to one of the base camps.. u can understand the nuances if u see their work urself.. wil take abt an hr to go... so proly its all going to b abt 6-7 hrs...a weekend shud suit u'll fine.
what i felt we can do is
a) If u r an MBA grad, u can proly have a brain storming session(im not one...so .. ..) on how u can organize events and proly how u can hit on the sensitivities of the aam junta(in villages) what kind of a campain can appeal to them n stuff..
also, how they can broaden horizons n go beyond PG junta; coz i've been asociated with it for some time now.. i know they'r a good org.. but how can ppl trust it n come fwd n help?
b) tech ppl... graphics... posters for mvf.. some work that we can do at home too...
c) teaching was fun... but unfortunately...none of us has kept in touch with the students... n wen i ran into ravi(camp).. he still spoke to me in telugu:(.. we can proly have classes, but proly a science class, or an 'easy math' clas for the students...
n IF IF IF we r many in number..some of us can proly approach another org which has base in hyd n students also...n volunteer to work with the ppl there(home for the aged/ mentally challenged/ health-med camps/ children in govt schools/ orphans ) ... theres a lott that can b done IF IF IF we want to :infinity:
hoping for a rocking response!!
