Deepam Fellows 2008

We are happy to announce the Deepam Fellows Program - Every year, the volunteers who had made a big impact on the endeavours of Deepam will be made the 'Deepam Fellow', in recognition of their contribution. This year we have 3 volunteers who have made significant contributions to Deepam in 2008. They were awarded a certificate and a memento, at the anniversary celebrations

Anbu :

The guy's commitment levels are phenomenal - he commutes 4 hours every saturday, to teach the kids for 2 hours. He also 'connects' with the kids easily - he understands the kids and speaks their 'language'. His ability to draw the kids out and engage them are truly worth emulating. 

Mohan :

The one guy who truly doesn't understand IST - he is always ahead of time, for every single class / meeting - truly, a students' nightmare !!! Being a fast runner, helps! There has been very few times he missed teaching on Saturdays. The most regular feature at the Nalamdana centre.

Bhargav :

He has a gift of explaining concepts to the students - His methods of giving examples makes students visualize the concepts and understand them easily. This regular at Nalamdana centre ( along with Archana and Mohan ) is responsible for the regular high turnout ( over 95% attendance ) for all the sessions .
