Digambarpur Proposal Live Vote

  • Divya and Shishira discussed two proposals for Digambarpur Angikar- the pre-primary school and girls with special needs.
  • Asha SF is not in a position to fully fund both proposals while still maintaining a healthy WCR. So the stewards (Megha and Divya) conducted due diligence with the partner extensively and concluded that certain budget items can either be reduced or go completely unsupported by Asha SF.
    • For the pre-primary school proposal, the partner came back with a reduced ask after we communicated our financial situation.
    • For the girls with special needs proposal, the partner highlighted the need for hiring new special ed instructors and vocational training providers. However, Asha SF is not in a financial position to continue supporting their full ask for this year which saw a 95% increase from 2017. Also, the partner received significant support from the Government of India to run this project as listed on their website. The stewards opined that the project will continue to run even without Asha SF’s sustained funding. Therefore, the stewards’ recommendation was to support one-time expenses only.
    • One recommendation was to continue to follow up with the project and should our financial situation change for the better and if the project has not secured other sources of funding, we can consider funding them in the future.
    • Question during call: Where we can’t support them -- how does it affect them?
    • Do you know if they plan to obtain the funds from another source for the specific new line items in the new budget for the girls with special needs? Not sure…
  • Live Vote - Do you support
    • i) Proposal 1 - Three pre-primary schools at reduced ask of Rs. 18,40,000 to go towards nutrition, teachers’ salaries, warm clothes and uniforms etc,
