I'm participating in the quiz. My company (YASU Technologies, Hyd) is sponsoring me for the quiz along with another colleague .


Has been a long time since the event was on 4th june

In brief it was a very successful event. And we are really thankful to
you and ISB for that. On the day of the event we dint have any
problems and everything went according to the plan. Thanks to the
extreme cooperation of the ISB support staff.

We had 38 participating teams and had around 300 plus audience for the
Quiz. We had some sponsors also. We finally managed to raise 2 lakh
ruppes for the school.

We haev started off the mid day meal programme at the school at at
present there are around 250 school children who are benifitting from

The cost of one day's meal comes to around 1500 for them. We are
raising the remaining amount by getting people to sponsor a days meal
at the school. So hopefull we will be able to manage it for full year.

Going forward we haev plans to link up with various corporates who are
interested in helping us in such projects. We are planning to do more
awareness campaigns and fund raising in future and also get involved
in more projects . if possible we would also try to start local asha
chapters outside Hyderabad to widen ourr each.
