Online NGO coordination System Discussion
This is a mail from one of our (TMAD group) members, Mr. Suresh.
He is really thinking a lot on how to create awareness in people staying in US. I thought of an e-magazine wherein we mention the news of whats going on in India, both good and bad. How different groups and corporate social responsibility wings of different companies trying to help. And also the necessity to unite them all.
Can we collectively do that? Can anyone help him in his efforts?
As Satish garu requested to share few ideas, I am sharing one here. The basic idea is every city, every town collectively can generate the income necessary to address the needs of the sick, poor and other less advantageous people. I wanted to prove this idea by conducting a survey like study. But many persons with whom I discussed this idea, damned it saying that it doesn’t work and companies cannot provide information for their own privacy reasons.
Ofcourse this is the basic idea and we can work for another alternative on how to prove that it would be the case. The thing is the Foundations which have funds are doing social work on a greater scale. Think about small groups and individuals. They are doing tasks individually. But if we collaborate and co-operate, we can address more issues.
I wrote more about few of my thoughts in this respect at: http://geocities.com/dokkuface4
I am planning to come up with a blog. But with the current workload, I may not be able to do it until November/December.
- How many employees are there in particular branch of your company?
- What are the income groups?
- Say for example, the pay starts from 5K/month.
- 5k to 10k – 100 rs
- 10k to 20k – 250 rs
- 20k to 30k – 500 rs
- 30k to 40k – 1000 rs
- 40k to 50k – 1500 rs
- 50k to 60k – 2000 rs
- 60k to 70k – 2500 rs
- 70k to 80k – 3000 rs
- 80k to 90k – 4000 rs
- 90k to 100k – 4500 rs
This is just an idea. It can be some percentage (3 to 5%) of the salary also.
- How much amount can be generated from your own branch (It doesn’t mean that everyone will come forward or no one support at all)? Just a survey kind of thing.
- Similarly for degree/pg students (who study in corporate colleges). How much pockey money a student in your circle gets every month? How much you can gladly offer?
It doesn’t mean everyone will give or I am not asking any donation or fund. This is just an analysis. Collecting figures and then contrasting it with facts. What could be the moderation? If at all, we suppose that optimized amount can be generated as expected/estimated, how many issues can be solved?
Let me know your opinions.

Subject: Re: [tomakeadifference] Few suggestions – especially people who live on NET 🙂
Excuse me for my absence , i was terribly sick for the last week , but not anymore 🙂
What must be done should be done and why only we , because they cannot . There is no limit to what we can do , if we set ourselves to do it.
To be more specific , i’ve been very much bothered by what is happening with the farmers in vidharba , andhra pradesh and with all the floods around. Well what we can do , to be more specific , what i can do.
A general observation is that there is a large section of indian community in the US who are so into their own world that they just do not have time for anything else. But they do have time for a concert by Himesh reshamia or a broad way show or an every week visit to the temple.
Lack of awareness is surely one big reason. I see that are newspapers, magazines in almost every grocery shop , every indian street , which are full of bollywood news and nothing else. Yeah , a tragic incident , or a disaster is bound to find a spot , but thats about it.
I’m planning to make an effort along with some friends of mine to start this on a small scale in new jersey. It is really important to rekindle the spirits and work as a group and not as individuals.
India shining , india rising are all media hypes , in a true sense , India can only rise and shine when the poor , the rural can see and experience the benefits of a developed India.
again , the activities the M.A.D hyderabad and bangalore have taken up such as weekly visits to the schools , medical camps, food distribution . make me feel proud and rejuvenate me to work hard and do contribute.
I’ve used “I” as opposed to “We” just to give my point of view .
