If you are an NGO needing volunteers, click here to fill form
| I would appreciate if you would
volunteer for any of the following to increase and improve the info on www.karmayog.com
We would deeply appreciate your help in the following ways:
Category/ Topic Descriptive Phrase URL / website page link
The categories / topics can cover any topic close to your heart e.g.
Fund-Raising, NGO newsletters, non-profit publications, etc.
The lists of ngo's in www.karmayog.com/lists/ngos.htm needs
to be updated. The only 2 lists which are fairly up-to-date are orphanages
and the animal welfare ones.
We would appreciate if someone would volunteer
to search articles for us on the internet.

If you can attend any of the programs on Karmayog's behalf, do let us know, as there is certain info that we like to get from each such program.
get many emails daily e.g. from those needing volunteers, materials, services,
funds, etc. and also from those willing to provide such support.
We need this data via the various forms that are already on our home page.
We would like a volunteer who can put this data into the form i.e.
- we will forward the emails every day to the volunteer
- the volunteer has to copy-paste the data in the emails into the relevant fields in the form that same night.
Some data may have to be re-worded to fit the field in the form. So the skill-set needed is good grammatical English, common-sense, willingness to type diligently i.e. capitals where needed, etc. A cable net connection would be preferred to ensure that work is done in a timely manner.
We will pay Rs. 2 per form.
When data is put into a form, it can be put more easily on the website by the software itself. The data is also available in a very searchable and user-friendly format. This helps both the person who sent the email and those who want to be involved with such a person.
If you are willing, please contact me.
We would like to map the capacity and capability of each NGO sector in Mumbai. We began with the hearing-challenged. We tried to obtain info about every school and every NGO. We then visited them to profile them so as to put up meaningful data on the net which could benefit beneficiaries and their families, schools, ngo's, Rotary clubs, service providers, etc. both in and outside Mumbai.
After each visit, we realised that we missed out on some questions that we should have asked i.e. we could not figure out a proper checklist of questions from the beginning itself. So the effectiveness of the data that we have been able to put up is much lesser than what it could have been.
Also, even at the end of this month-long exercise, I realised that we do not have a good overview of the sector.
So I think it would be better if we can get guidance and support from someone in an ngo in each sector who has a good broad and deep understanding of the sector.
I would have liked to donate to the ngo in return for the time the person would be putting in but I don't think that our level of possible donation would be adequate to make that a worthwhile reason to guide us.
So I would appreciate being contacted only by those who really like the Karmayog concept and who would be willing and able to spare adequate time over the phone and for a review meeting every 2-3 months.
NGOs have been listed by their location in Mumbai in
We would like certain more data about each and would thus appreciate if you
can volunteer to visit all the NGOs which are in any area convenient to you.
You can do so at your own pace.
If interested, Contact 22940109 (For enquiries between 2 to 3 pm).
would greatly appreciate if someone can take the trouble to email news pertaining
to NGOs which are covered by newspapers.
We need the headline, date, the article itself, and the url of the article.
Pl email to firstname.lastname@example.org . Pl send each news item individually in the body of the email itself and not as an attachment.
Some news websites are www.samachar.com and www.ptinews.com .
We would prefer Mumbai or national level news.
We are also willing to pay a nominal amount. Contact 22940109 (For enquiries between 2 to 3 pm)

Flood victims in Agarpada, Vakola and Kalina districts of Mumbai. They are
primarily working in a slum that houses nearly 20,000 shanties accommodating
over 200,000 people.
The wall that acts as a fence between the slum community and the Mumbai airport broke down on July 26th, 2005 with the force of the
floods and several houses were swamped, washed away and also several people lost their lives.
IAHV is collecting medicines, bed sheets, blankets, grains at a storage center in Vakola.
Volunteers are needed to segregate these items and transport these items to the slums and help in distribution of the same. Also a
medical camp is being started on Saturday August 6th 2005.
If you would like to volunteer please contact IAHV and speak to Alpa at 9820334944.

this is a charitable activity and a social responsibility we are not making
any money out of this. But since the volunteers are giving their services
we have decided to award compensation by paying them. The compensation
would be 25% of the amount collected by the volunteer.
example a volunteer fills up 100 successful forms and collects Rs. 20/-
per head, this would amount to Rs. 2000/- as total collection. The person
would be awarded a compensation of Rs. 500/- and so on.

Request to those who wish to Volunteer with NGOs through Karmayog
It is good to see so many people
wanting to volunteer time and energy for socially relevant work of their
choice. Karmayog is happy to provide space for them to explore possibilities
to find such work with suitable organisations. However, we have found that
some individuals ignore response from NGOs and other groups to their own
announcements. Please at least politely inform the responding
organisation that they are not interested in working with it for some reason
or the other. A few not bothering to respond can create
a wrong impression for others who are earnest and sincere in their
desire to volunteer time and energy. Their credibility is questioned. NGOs
and other organisations might think they too are not serious about volunteering.
Do let us also know the following:
- how many ngo's contacted you?
- could you volunteer with any?
- if so, with whom?
- what was wrong with the others?
- your suggestions for ngo's and for karmayog.

shortage of eyeballs and probably 2 to 3 million people awaiting the
transplant of cornea so that they can get the lost vision. The
collection is hardly 10,000 in the whole year all over India.
Accordingly the awaiting list will never end.
I have prompted a project and I hope every person take it seriously.
The project is very simple that every person should try and
arrange donation of atleast one dead persons eye to the eye bank
in the whole year. This
is possible because everyone of us stays in some society and every
society have many flats and many people also live in your neighborhood
of you. You may come
across atleast 2 to 3 deaths in one year and what you have to do is
that out of these 2 to 3 deaths you have to persuade atleast one person
to donate eyes and if that is done the shortage of eye balls in Maharashtra
will be over.
can be removed only after the Death Certificate is made, and only
if the relatives/close friends who are present at that time sign the
Consent Form. Eye removal
takes just 15 minutes & does not affect the appearance of the
face. Removal should be done as early as possible (max. 6 hrs) of
death. Keep the eyes
closed. Cover the eyes with cold cloth or ice compress. Avoid water
entering the eyes or direct blast of fan on the eyes. Keep the head
raised, by putting a pillow under the head.
it is not difficult if you think that you are helping 2 blind people
by doing this to get their vision and this will give you the best
result in your life. By
such deed God will bless you in very best manner, as there can be
no better donation then this. Please inform us immediately that you
have done the projected donation of eye of one man and we will try
to honour you with a certificate for this service of good deed rendered
to the society. If you have any difficulty to carryout this project
you are free to contact me.
We have literature on the procedure and if you want the same
please let me know.

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, WeP Peripherals
has initiated rehabilitation efforts in Naluvedapatty, a village 50 kms
south of Nagapattinam - one of the areas affected adversely by Tsunami last
year. Some of our rehabilitation and social development activities include
distributing nets to localites who lost these because of the tsunami, construction
of toilets (especially for female students, as lack of separate toilet facilities
result in female student dropouts), enhancing the quality of education in
schools, de-siltation of agricultural lands rendered uncultivable due to
salt deposition after the tsunami and construction of essential facilities
in their schools.
We are looking for volunteers to help us in our endeavor to enhance the quality of education in the schools. The volunteers would be required to visit Naluvadapathy and spend a period of two weeks teaching or coaching rural school students in their primary classes in subjects like English and activity based subjects like General
This would be an extremely rewarding experience personally for the individual, apart from being an opportunity of being an ambassador for WeP - the organization we have decided to call our own. I would request you all to consider volunteering for this activity which we believe is a small but effective step towards imparting effective education for children in rural schools.
The first batch of volunteers would be sent to the site in the last week of August or early September.
All interested could send me their confirmations through email at Vishakha.Das@wepindia.com

For those of you who want to volunteer at Pratham
these are a few activities that I thought of. I have kept in mind the time factor for volunteers so there might be few things that are time intensive like evaluation of a project etc and others involve minimal
time e.g. weekend activity with children.
Please feel free if you want the activities in detail.
1. Read to me Saturdays: Where the volunteers could read stories to the children.
2. Art and Craft day: The volunteers can teach a special craft to the children. It could be small thing they know, kite making, flower making, book making, etc. It will be better if it is a low cost item.
3. Spread the word day: It is a day decided by every one to talk about Pratham and its activities to one more person and ask them to join our guest list.
4. Recommendation day: The volunteer is supposed to visit Pratham classes and leave a sealed note at the zonal office about his/her views about what he saw and what recommendations he/she has.
5. Write a letter day: The volunteers describe what they saw in our classes. It has to be a short note and will be put up on the Pratham website.
6. Write stories: Pratham is always in need of stories. Pratham Books could publish the stories with an acknowledgement to you J
7. Expertise help: Pratham is always in need of people who could
make use of their professional skill in the organisation e.g.
database management, help with PR etc.
8. Evaluators: We are always in need of external program evaluators who could evaluate a project or a class overtime to present to us their views. This helps us to better our programs and
gives the volunteers a good field experience.
9. Forming an active like minded group: We could start with various activities to promote Pratham's work and its intensions. It will be a good base to exchange ideas amongst the group.
"Radhika Iyengar" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
PS: These are only a few activity's that I could think of based on my
experience, but Pratham caters to a wide variety of backgrounds. I am
an economist by training and am a full time volunteer with Pratham.
