On 6th of March 2017 we had a meeting with three of our star volunteers in Shujalpur at my brother’s resident at 8.00 PM. The meeting was attended by Rajneesh Jain, Dharmendra Parmar and Purushottam Parvani. This meeting was to plan the future road map of ShantiSeva’s work in six villages. This meeting turned into a Q&A session.
Rajneesh: Sir what is plan for year 2017-2018 in the women self help area?
Ravi: Rajneesh I think we have reached most women in the six villages and have given them micro-loans. Most of them are doing well.
Rajneesh : Are you planning to include more villages to promote ShantiSeva work?
Ravi: I think we should concentrate in six villages only. At present we have very limited funds. We should encourage more women in these villages to start home base business.
Dharmendra: Sir what about public health & hygiene works in all villages.
Ravi: As you know health & hygiene is our second pillar of ShantiSeva’s work area. I know our work in this area is very slow. We are currently working in one village. I know you have other responsibilities and have little time to put into this project.
Dharmendra: Sir I will assure you that in year 2018-2019 we will be able to put more time in villages with the help of college student volunteer to teach school children and housewives about health, hygiene and safe drinking water.
Ravi: I very happy that your team approach is working but it’s a little slow. I hope it will a pick-up the speed as times goes on. Good luck in your work.
Purushottam: Sir what about the Child Medical help programs.
Ravi: As you know ShantiSeva is very new in this area. I am depending on your guidance and your local team to work with ShantiSeva. As you know on your recommendation, we have sponsored 25 family child medical insurances.
Purushottam: What is target for year 2018-2019 in child medical help programs?
Ravi: We will try to sponsor 30-50 families in coming years.
Thanks for taking part in this Q & A meeting. We will be in touch with each other by email, WhatsApp and phone. Good luck in your work.
