Progress Report and Wishing You Happy New Year

January 1, 2010

Dear friends,

New Year Greetings from Seva Mandir!

We hope this year brings you all the happiness, peace and prosperity to you. We also hope that we together help reduce the sufferings of our planet this year.

We would like to thank you for all your support that you extended at various points of time to each of our programs. The progress we have been able to make would have not been possible without your support.

A quick update about our fellowship program –

There were 19 fellows selected but 2 of them withdrew from the program because of personal reasons. Now we have about 17 fellows. In May this year a group of 6 students from Nourish International, USA made a documentary on ‘Jati Panchayat’ (caste council) issues in Badgaon Block, which is one of the themes a couple of fellows are working on. A review meeting was held in October along with regular monthly meetings where fellows share their work with mentors and other staff members.

In November on 26th and 27th a two day training on ‘Report and Case Study Writing’ for the fellows was organized. A total of 15 fellows and 8 mentors attended the same.

Since the fellows lack good writing skills; this training was very useful for them. The sessions focused on best practices of report and case study writing. The session was followed by a group exercise. The fellows also received instructions for punctuations, forming new sentences, paragraphs etc. The trainers explained to the fellows to keep a record of their work on a regular basis so as their report and stories cover the significant points of the work done. All the participants enjoyed participating in the training and found it very useful.

We will keep you updated about the progress of this program as often as we can. Do let us know if you any feedback to share on this update. Thank you once again for supporting us.

With warm regards,

Deepti deepti@sevamandir.org
