Currently there are 6 people, 2 in Chennai , 2 in USA, one in Canada, one in Saudi for the Trg/Education and Employment forum. We need some more . I feel we should use this forum for the following to begin with, please give additional ideas

1. Provide all info that will help brahmin community children know about opportunities that exist in India as well as outside , admission procedures etc , this site should also include vocational, non Univerity kind of stuff as well. In fact we can categorize into , +2 students, for Bsc / for Bcom students etc

2. make sure poor deserving candidates get help in the form of loans and donations with a verbal commitment they will help fellow brahmins wherever they are and in whatever way they can

3. Explore ways in which rich families can educate poor children , volunteers to make sure money reaches the right people for right purpose

4. Persuade brahmin schools/ educational institutions to admit atelast few poor brahmin students free of cost

5. Conduct coaching sessions, could be on anything like English speaking skills/personality development skills etc for students from smaller villages

Hello subalaji:

I was thinking of putting up a flier in Hindu temples about our site. This will help us get more members registered and better coverage as well. In terms of other activities: I'll do my best, whatever it is I can from here and will let you or our group of volunteers know if I’m hard pressed for time then. Hope it helps

Hi Iyengar,

But when u put it up in Temples just dont give too much info as it might attract unwanted attention, you can may want it to put it in a simple format

We all are tied up with so many things , even if we take up a small and simple task it is still worthwhile

As I said in another thread I did post a flyer in the local temple and some people objected and got it removed. So you might want to contact your temple committee before posting.

I will continue contacting other members of the community in person.

If some body can give some space, we could put computer for the practice of the students. That will help them to see the whole world and reach out for help.

Hi subalaji
Just came back from Salt Lake City, Utah (USA). A young gentleman named Ramki (Ramakrishnan) called me from Raleigh, NC (USA) last week and talked to me about volunteers. Unfortunately, I misplaced his cell phone number. He said he would send me an email.
Could you please tell me where things stand in regard to organizing the volunteers in the US?

Hi subalaji

Add me as a volunteer from USA. I will try to organize the volunteers from USA. I spoke to Silver FOx last week. I will talk to all the USA members this weekend and see where we are.

Hi SilverFox, sorry I had to go out on a call. Will call you again this week.

Thanks Volunteers , it is better we communicate on this forum than give my personal numbers etc, if not please always send a message thru this site to me .As Volunteers we need to figure out what all we can realistically do , some ideas please

I feel we should do

1. Make sure more and members join this site as well as Volunteers forum across the world.

2. Make sure lot of useful info gets put up in this site on education and creating a resume database

3. Identify needy deserving students and make sure money reaches the right people and used in the right way

4. Encourage people to contribute financially , get in touch with successful businessmen/ any profession and encourage them to put money into our fund

any other ideas ?

Hi Subalaji:
1.
I already floated the idea of making members pay an annual membership fee, which could be used to support our causes and to take care of administrative expenses. This could be $10/yearly for people in the US and Rs.250 for people in India. (or something like that). We could setup something like paypal to make it easier for people to contribute (or even credit cards).
2.
Instead of asking members to help out when the need arises, we could establish a general fund for the help of needy Brahmins.

Your views and comments are welcome.

Member ship fee

Hi Silverfox,


I feel we should not say membership fee as we want more and more people to join this site and contribute whatever they can , even posting useful info and suggestions are very helpful.

We should just request members and all people we know to voluntarily put money independent of membership to this site is my opinion

The issue is who will distribute , we need more volunteers in chennai and other cities in south

Regards
Balaji

I want to know if I can form an email alias for all volunteers and circulate emails among us , this is because some people feel it is breach of privacy
However this is the only easy way we can communicate is my opinion

So may be we can have seperate email ids for this
