Dear donors and all other supporters and well wishers of this project.
Here is the latest news on what has been happening to the project. We have not been sitting idle.
It looks like slow going but things are moving.
We approached a reputed chartered accountants consultancy firm ( Vishnudaya) in Bangalore and with their help formed the trust.
We are now official.
As of October 27th.
We are called Autism for Help Village Project Trust.
We are an Indian NGO/NPO.
The trust has a Board of Directors now, of course, composed of me ( A.V.Koshy) and Mrs. Anna Gabriel. We still have no bank account but the trust deed has been drawn up and registered etc.
We have spent Rs. 13,236 plus 1400 Rupees so far for registration and for the drafting of the trust deed.
After the formation of the trust and its registration and the making of the Board and especially after getting the bank account we can approach Globalgiving for disbursement of the funds collected so far.
Globalgiving is also trying their best to speed up the disbursement of funds.
Then we can start working on the project in a deeper way.
Our facebook group- http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=142521532441453 -now has 211 members. :) IT IS A BIT QUIET THERE THESE DAYS BUT STILL THE MEMBERS DO KEEP INCREASING! :) AND CONTRIBUTING.
You can comment on this report if you are a member of Globalgiving or write to me at email@example.com with your suggestions etc., as to how this project can be carried forward and what role you could play in it to further its potential.
TO ACTUALLY COME TO THE POINT WHERE ONE GETS PAST ALL THE OFFICIAL STUFF THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE SO THAT DIRECT HELP FINALLY COMES TO THOSE WE WANT TO HELP- THE AUTISTIC PEOPLE THEMSELVES - IS NOT EASY BUT I KNOW ONE THING:
WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN DO IT. I BELIEVE IN PERSISTENCE< PERSEVERANCE < STEADFASTNESS< PATIENCE AND PRAYER PAYING OFF ABUNDANTLY.
TAKE CARE AND ALL THE BEST AS ALWAYS
