Social engagement

1. Will we succeed in putting it together?
2. Will we find the required funds?
3. Will we complete on time?
4. Will there be cost overrun? – How will we bridge it?
5. Will the project reach the desired target?
6. Will it be sustainable?”
7. Will it be maintained to last?

These and many other questions fleet through the mind whether the project is a commercial one or a social project.

When I read through Gandhiji’s writings many years ago, the following quotes jumped out and remain imprinted in my mind.

1. “India 1s to be found not in its few cities but in its 7,00,000 villages.

The cities are capable of taking care of themselves. It is the villages we have to turn to. We have to disabuse them of their prejudices, their superstitions, their narrow outlook, and we can do so in no other manner than that of staying amongst them and sharing their joys and sorrows and spreading education and intelligent information among them”

2. “Find the purpose and the means will follow.”

3 “Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.”

4 “Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served. But all other pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy”.

The underlying power of these quotes amazes me time and again when each time the project is identified, the funds flow in the land is donated, the personnel fall in place, the education department officers are ready to help and the villagers are enthusiastic with their support.

We work the following to ensure community owner ship

1. Get the village fully involved right form the selection of the site and use the village Dynamics to get the site donated /allocated for building the school. this first step ensures that the villagers feel that it is their school and not a government school.

2. Create a lively, airy, well lit classrooms where the children will come happily every day.

3. Provide hygienic and easily maintainable toilets for the children. In true Rotary spirit thought is given to ensure that all factors of water, electricity and rain water harvesting are taken care of. Provide kitchen to cook mid-day meal scheme.

4. Provide sports and play equipment in all schools we build.

5. Funding is by getting corporates to fulfill their CSR by educating children in the villages.

The school built are not in the cities but in the real rural hinterland where the results of these interventions are heartening with the high attendance, minimal dropouts and excellent academic and co- curricular results.

Three critical areas which we face and surmount every time are

1. Getting the villages to gift the land (free to the education department)
2. Getting the support of the village community.
3. Getting a contractor to work in these remote areas and getting quality work.

This proven model template as can enable corporate to fulfill their CSR. The the school adoption program where the corporates can sport their names on the school. The school will be named after the corporate. We have a data bank of villages in their need of schools.

We would be pleased to provide information on how the corporates can fullfill their CRS with reaching the FULL rupee spent to their targeted interest category with NO administrative or supervision costs.

Some of Linkers customers who have came to bulid schools on their name are

1. Jansen textile GmbH (Germany)
2. Roadsign group.
3. W. WILLPÜTZ KUNSTSTOFFVERVERARBEITUNG-GMBH (Germany)

Over the last years we have completed more than 25 such school projects in the villages.
