Who: Sindhu Kashyap

Notes:

Discussion: Etasha's Project Manzil- Year 3 project proposal

  1. Project steward Sindhu Kashyap presented slides summarizing project. Slides are attached.
  2. At the time, steward due diligence and recommendation were as follows:
    • Asha SF already supports another Project from the same partner - Prerna. We released funds for the 7th time for this project. 
    • Funds requested for 8 schools, with a proposed budget increase ~46%
    • Asha SF does not have funds to support the requested amount of Rs. 19,51,400
    • Site visit pending, have not done a site visit for this project in 2 years.
    • Supported the project in its entirety in the last two years, funded 100% of the requested funds.
    • Overall the project is doing well. Feedback has been good from the students, Principals and teachers. This project will continue to grow. 
    • Etasha is a very well funded organization overall; historically shortfalls met with new funding or from bridge funding. 
    • Still recommend to support Etasha Manzil as long as we have funds to support them.
  3. STEWARD RECOMMENDATION -> subject to chapter funds, support no budget increase from last year's budget. INR 13,32,750 (~$18.5K)
  4. INR 13,32,750 will be released for supporting salaries of project manager, counsellors and administrators as well as travel and other expenses for 5 schools'.
