Improve Chennai - Lets paint in GREENViews: 249

Hi All,
We are all set to start now that we have reached the magic number ;-D Am sure Govind would not agree with me.
Am leaving for AP tonite, then Hosur, Coimbatore then Bangalore. Hopefully should be back in Chennai next weekend.
As Govind and a few may know - am an Independent Consultant, I associate with other NGOs and ensure that projects not only take shape but also are implemented. Came across this YES International and immediately felt that they were doing a remarkable job of building and maintaining toilets in all bus stands, Railway stations and other public areas. It is indeed disgusting and revolting to see people use the streets as toilets and am liasoning with the Government and Corporate to build more toilets. This also generates a lot of jobs for the lower income group and also keeps the environment clean and healthy.
I support another organisation called YES - Youth Employment Summit. Had sent an invitation abt it last month. This organisation addresses unemployment not only in the urban but also rural youth. They collaborate with the Industrialists in that area and the Government and set up manufacting units which again gives 100s of job opportunities. The best thing about this organisation is that they have tied up with another organisation which buyes back whatever is produced by the SHGs.
Am also promoting a Community College in Porur. Whats so unique about this College is that the candidate who enroles here is given a placement at the end of 1 year. He is taught vocational skills like 2 wheeler mechanics, 4 wheeler mechanics, Ac mechanics, bakery, DTP etc. From the 7th month he is made an apprentice in a company and gets a stipend of Rs. 1500 and the minute he completes the next 6 months he is placed there with a starting salary of Rs. 2,500 which is a good money for all the 8th drop outs and 10th std. Here again am going and taklking to all Corporate, Rotary and Lions Clubs etc. I also consider this the best option for the Tsunami youth and am seeing people eager to sponsor a livlihood and not merely buy and give boats, nets or provisions.
As you can see the more u look around the more projects there are just waiting to be done. If any of you are interested in any of the above mentioned area or if we can do these projects through WCFC am game. For me more than the name - the project has be done. As always suggestions and ideas always welcome. Govind, now u have to call the shots and tell us how we can go abt it.
The advantage of associating with an NGO ensures that the projects run smoothly and just your ideas and suggestions wherever u can't be physically present is also equivalent to working directly in the field. You could help in arranging funds and people like me who have all the time in the world can implement it and bring a new meaning in the lives of the deserving. Await your immediate response. Take care all and have a great weekend.
