Have you imagined what it would be like to meet the real people who make things happen for all of us at the community level? And meet all of them together? Well, the Rang De team stopped imagining a while ago has been working to make a Rang De Field Partner Meet happen before the end of year 2009. The Rang De Field Partner meet is a platform for all our partners to come together and share their experiences. It is also an opportunity for us to thank them for all the hard work they put in to ensure that our money is indeed being used where we think it is.
My colleague Diksha took up the responsibility of co-ordinating the event about a month ago. The planning was more difficult than we thought. We have 17 different field partners visiting us from 8 states and co-ordinating the logistics was a nightmare. Now, however, everything sorted out and the team is counting down to the event.
The Rang De field partner meet is going to be held on 11th and 12th of December and we are all looking forward to a good break. It is also a great opportunity for the Rang De team to catch up with one another.
Here are the highlights of the meeting:
1) Ice Breaker session — since everyone is meeting for the first time, this will be a perfect way to get comfortable with each other.
2) Best Practices sharing — two of our field partners making a presentation on their best practices.
3) Feedback session — a session on getting all our field partners to provide us with feedback on their relationship with Rang De.
4) Importance of social media
Apart from this, there will be loads of team building and fun activities too. Stay tuned to our social media channels for live updates during the event. For the event that was..watch out for our next blog post.
