Community Activity at Mahatma Gandhi School - Viluppuram


#1

Hello People,

We FSFTN at Viluppuram has been carrying over a set of activities for students in and around Viluppuram. Viluppuram has been one of the places where we have started GLUG(Viluppuram GLUG) a long time ago and be able to maintain it effectively.

In recent times, volunteers at FSFTN are working on this activity and we have got a School near Viluppuram as a common meeting place. We have been struggling a lot for a venue around there. So it is a good place to resume our activities over there.

Venue - https://osm.org/go/y4DVxGhbl

The activities have been going on for a period of 2 to 3 months and we are able to bring up reasonable amount of interested students. Our recent activity is regarding OpenStreetMaps and we would like to go ahead with Wikipedia.



Currently from FSFTN, Devakumar and Mugunthan have been working over there with the students. We also need to loook over certain things which I would like to mention here.

  • We need to start our CCC activity in that Government School which I personally feel has an ideal scenario

  • We need a team to follow up the GLUG activities over there.

  • We need list of community tasks and projects to engage the students with

  • We need to come up with an idea (Technical Contribution from FSFTN) to maintain the relationship with the school

In the end, the main aim of this post is to notify the interested peoples about this so that they can engaged and start collaborating with the community and be a part of it. So, whoever interested can come with feasible dates and ideas so that they can be utilized accordingly.

Thank you :pray:
