Yes, we have a great team at Janyaa. Or else how could we reach 20,000 rural children in just a matter of 3 years? We cannot afford to hire people to get work done and like any budding non-profit organization we depend primarily on support from our volunteers along with friends, family, donors and sponsors.
Our Arpana event was a huge success yesterday and here is a small tribute to all who contributed to it.
No event can be successful without the support from sponsors. A big thank you to all our sponsors: http://janyaa.org/new/?page_id=405. Samosas from New India Bazaar and Pongal from Dosa Bawarchi Miliptas was too good. And of course the sweet made by our dear friend Gayatri Palepu was out of the world. Thank you all.
Special thanks to our families for supporting us by allowing us to spend time in making this event successful. It’s not easy to take care of domestic things on your own while your partner is helping us out. We sincerely thank you all.
There were lot of people who have supported us in various ways in making this event successful. We feel blessed to have all of them in our lives. Thank you Mohan Nannapaneni, Tarun Kakani, Ena Sarkar, Apeksha Anand, Anwesa Garg, Madan & Rani Arora, Geeta Parthasarathi, Mamatha Rathnam, Sarah Cramer, Hema Reddy and many more. Here is a small thank you note from all of us at Janyaa: https://janyaa.wordpress.com/2012/03/19/feel-blessed/
Last but not the least all of the Janyaa team without whom we wouldn’t have reached this stage.
Kaushik Macherla – Outstanding volunteer of Janyaa. We cannot imagine doing any event without Kaushik’s support. he is all over the place and we do not even know where to start thanking him. He has taken care of so many things for this event, the list only gets bigger and bigger as we think about it. He is not only very forthcoming in picking up the tasks, he also steps in at the last minute for any emergency situations. Even yesterday he saved us from last minute situations. Thank you Kaushik, you are an integral part of Janyaa and we cannot imagine Janyaa without you.
