Opportunities for you:

Photo Contest

Over time, we have realised that donors appreciate photos from NGOs. Hence, we request you to send in photos of your team, your beneficiaries as well as the work that you do. Your photos could capture a classroom scene or products that the people you help have created or anything else you would like to share with donors. We will ask donors to choose the picture they like best, and keep you informed of the results in this newsletter. We look forward to an enthusiatic response.

Volunteers to help you build projects

Harsh Trivedi and Alex Lemke, lawyers from the UK based firm http://www.sullcrom.com/firm will volunteer full time with us for one year from August onwards in Mumbai. They will pilot a Keystone project to help our listed NGOs build projects that can be sold to High Networth Individuals (HNI) clients and corporates, and they will then take a set of projects back to HNI donors in the UK. We will keep you posted on developments, and soon mail you with more details.

Donor's Delight:

Vinith Rao on receiving feedback from SEARCH for the Donation he made to Support a Child Boot Polish worker for a month writes "Thank you very much for sharing this with me. I felt genuinely satisfied that I have been able to make a difference - however small it may be - to another human being. May God bless Uday and I sincerely hope his dreams come true.
I donate because its the least I can do to contribute to humanity and society in my busy corporate life; and the payroll donation program that HSBC has with GiveIndia makes the process very simple...."

Feedback of the Month:

Congratulations! Sanskruti Samvardhan Mandal for sending the story of Kasture Seema Dattaram.

"Moumita has one brother and one elder sister. They all live with their parents in a one-roomed mud house with tiled roof. Moumita’s father is the only earning member and earns Rs. 2,000/- per month as a Gate Grill mechanic. Moumita’s mother came to Bani Mandir to request them to sponsor her daughter’s education.

Moumita is not very meritorious and her school report is average. But she is working hard to make up her deficiency in her study. She is well behaved and respects her teachers. The donation has given her benefits like nutritious food, hygiene kits, note books and stationary, clothes and an exposure visit to the Sunderbans area. She wants to help her mother in household work, and would like to become a school teacher one day."

Tip of the Month:

If you have large projects that require funding, especially in the field of HIV/AIDS, please write to projects@giveindia.org, for proposal formats. We will store your projects in our projects catalouge which is made available to large donors.
