By Smita Ram, Rang De Team
Ram explains the Rang De Model as Gitesh kept asking questions that required in-depth explanations.
Rohit (President of the Chennai Chapter) and I were literally crossing our fingers. The Rang De Chennai Google Group had suddenly grown in membership in the past couple of weeks and we wanted to see the same action at the meet too.
On the day of the meet, there were 10 of us and we were thrilled with the attendance. After a quick round of introductions and some general introduction about Rang De, the group began to discuss potential initiatives. Some suggestions that came out from the meeting were reaching out to the Cognizant Foundation and other corporates, running a Rang De vehicle sticker campaign
Design contest for college students to participate in, Going on over night field trips to meet Rang De borrowers, and Participating in on-line campaigns.
Paayal discusses the idea of reaching out to corporates amidst the noise at Cafe Coffee Day.
The group will now decide on a couple of activities that they can focus on. You will soon see a lot more of our Chennai Chapter Members on all our social media and of course you are welcome to join the group on Facebook. Please write to rohit[at]rangde[dot]org or smita[at]rangde[dot]org if you want to be part of the budding Chennai chapter.
Special thanks to Paul, Payaal and Rajaraman for coming down to our office after work over three consecutive days last week to discuss and give feedback on the requirements for the revamp of our website.
