Volunteers needed by an NGO

Chandni forwarded me this:

Once again there is a great opportunity to volunteer with my favorite NGO: Down to Earth in Mumbai. Like every year we are organizing an Interactive Sports day on the 21st Feb 2010. It is different than most other sports day because instead of encouraging kids to compete with each other it will bring them together through sports!
Guys on a personal note ! I love them and what they do has a lot of thought put in it.. Also, volunteering with them is great fun and i can guarantee that that sunday will be the most satisfying and fin sunday of your life !
So please come forward and register to volunteer with us. The details are given below.

Dear Team,
Hope the 2010 has got off to a great start for you.
We are less than a month away from DTE’s annual sports event the Interactive Games Day slated for 21st Feb 2010. Hope each one of you given your extended association with us and faith in the change we are attempting to catalyze will be there partaking in the fun. We seek volunteers for the event and hope you can commit the time. We promise you will have a lot of fun, probably more than the children participating J

This year is the third edition of the Interactive Games Day and we aim to host approximately 500 children from several schools and organizations. The children will be in the age group of 10 to 16 years.
The event would involve games that focus on physical and mental ability and would require for individuals to work in teams. The idea is to foster a spirit of team work and inclusiveness amongst children from participating organizations. Please note we will mix and merge children from multiple organizations and schools to form teams. As a volunteer you can sign up for one/two (depending upon the nature of the role) of the following

Manage a team of children.
Facilitate a game.
Tabulate scores.
Keep time.
Serve food.
Coordinate travel logistics.
Attend medical emergencies. (hopefully this person will not be needed and can double up as the close out packing volunteer)
Outreach for the event. Please note this is a pre-event assignment that can be kick started NOW from the cozy confines of your office/home.

The key to ensure that the event is both fun and smooth sailing lies in our ability to prepare thoroughly. For this we recommend that you attend a volunteer orientation session at 6:00pm Saturday 20th Feb 2010 at the St Mary’s SSC School, Mazgaon. We recognize that you will have to stretch your day a little to be able to attend the volunteer orientation but promise that it will pay dividends on 21st Feb 2010. If you know someone that would love to volunteer for the event please let both them and us. We request you to confirm participation by the 9th February 2010. We look forward to hear from you.

Please call Ashishwang Godha at 9870250560 or Sachi Maniar at 9820877443 and/or write to us at for any further assistance.

With love in service,

Team DTE.
