but I sincerely request who can spare 30 minutes in two three days
20Yogish: Girish, I think Raju and Akhila's help should be enough for website and data collection.
I have to compile another 300 points. That can be done by this weekend.
I think we need more volunteers to help teachers at school or for other physical activities
like breakfast drive, helping in schools etc
21Yogish: We need to request our 25 volunteers to start working on each objectives depending upon their skill/strength or expertise.
For ex, Akhila is driving breakfast program.
Raju and Akhila are collecting/compiling the data. Some volunteers can start driving additional teaching program during their free time
where there students to teachers ratio is more than 25-30.
Prabhu is visiting nearby schools in Bangalore

4. Extracurricular activities, awareness in schools:
4.1 Include sports, singing, dancing, drawing, painting, yoga, meditation, karate, art, craft, debate n kitchen garden.
4.2 Improve reading habits, story/essay writing skills
4.3 Focus more on science projects and allow students to innovate new ideas/products

4.7 Train children to stay away from strangers and awareness about ‘sexual harassment’
4.8 Teach traffic rules
4.9 Awareness about pollution, cleanliness, green/renewable energy and to protect the environment/nature.
4.10 Swimming

24We don't need money, material to drive these, but volunteers need some skills and free time to give training.
25Yogish: We can involve mainly homemakers (who are qualified) to help in teaching to kids
for their regular subjects if there are shortage of teachers. Someone has to drive this to mobilize
26Nagesh TK: Yes we are focusing on students skill in this program like dance ,drama ,craft, speech
27Yogish: Also we can involve them for spoken English classes wherever it is required.
I think we can drive theses 2 very soon.
28Yogish: Yes, it may be a long list. But this is regular things taught in American schools
with some parents participation. Some of them are after hours school program (karate, yoga etc)
29Girish Mudigere: Lets take their easiest possible task by each volunteer

31Girish Mudigere: Raju, or others, please help to find names and small introduction of above numbers.
I will avoid Yogish, because.he is required to focus on website and volunteers drive

35Harshiya Banu: Kshamisi samayada biduvina korate iruvudarinda hechchu involve aglokke sadhyavagta
illa Nimmellara yojanegalannu gamanisuttiddene. Bahala santhoshavaguttide
Illiruva ellaru bhavya bhavishyad kanasannu hottavaru aadashtu bega nanasu maduvalli saagona
36Girish Mudigere: Harshiya, .everyone is busy. Taalme Bahala mukhya.. Wait maadale beku.
37Welcome Mr Chetan, volunteer to help in future
38Chaya Chandra Acharya: Sir i am too busy in correcting answer paper and one good news is that
i selected 4 slow learners to perform 5 minutes skit for their school day.
Too busy.Saturday i am free i have lot of ideas to improve
39Girish Mudigere: Actually that is part of our Main project, you are doing before us, also many teachers, volunteers here too are already executing We are just trying to connect well - Thank you
40Girish Mudigere: As per survey in any group average 10% members usually are active.
To improve number of active members we have to increase number of persons in the group.
Currently 66 persons in the group, more than 6 are active. Which is good
We increase to 256 shortly, need help to identify similar persons who are interested in improvement of government schools
41Yogish: Do we think that we need to be active in other social media too like google plus, Twitter, YouTube or LinkedIn.
I will check if same name is available. If yes, I will register (before someone else taking the name), but we don't have to be active there.
I think we need a YouTube channel to upload educational materials,
school activities, online classes or any school related videos.
Because this will improve our presence in online.
Only YouTube channel, but no other social media I guess.
42Girish Mudigere: Excellent idea. Kindly go forward Yogish. We always better to take opinion of team, but the above sound good direction3YRegisteredDonePlease add
