Quarterly Newsletter

July 2020 Edition 

Welcome to our second edition of newsletter.  As ever , It will be our endeavor to use this as our channel (minimally but optimally) for letting you know whats happening at our end without overloading you with too much information. 

In this edition, we will focus on premises on which we are building our organization. We would like to share our vision, beliefs and values that is very dear to us. We hope you are as much aligned to these as our cause!

With the pandemic still hovering around, we have been challenged in unprecedented ways. The kids and the families are being tested for their resilience and we are glad that ALL of them are fighting these "times" bravely while we are doing our best to "digitize" their children's education as much as we can

That said we hope  you and your loved ones are safe and comfortable. Please do stay indoors as much as you can.

Please do write to us @ communications@shiftingorbits.org or whatsapp @ +91 968 657 7038 for any suggestions that you might have to keep this channel engaging in an optimal way.

Here is a glimpse into other developments that's happening at our end

Digitization

With the lock-down and uncertainty around the state of education across the globe, it was not a choice for us to leave our kids behind in this new "race". We are pleased to let you know that we have been relentlessly experimenting with Online/Offline and Hybrid modes (which will make the most sense for the families) and are soon deploying these to our kids. We wont let their education be left behind!

Partnerships

We strongly believe in power of "collective" . Our core team continuously builds partnerships so we can take them to our SOF families

Currently we are at various stages of our partnerships with the following Ed/NGO Partners
United Efforts – Career Planning
Learning Mattters – English through Alexa + Teacher Training
Teach for India – Sourcing Partners for 2020 Beneficiaries (Immidahalli Unit)
Vidhyadhaara Foundation – Implementation Partners for our new Unit at Doddenakundi

    Covid - Support

    Thanks to your contributions, we were able to make three cycles of disbursement (~1 Lakh INR) to families we support. These were families that needed the most of our timely support to keep the roof above their heads during the last 3 months of lockdown. We are happy to inform that almost all these families are now returning to normalcy and so are we. We are also resuming our core service of educational support as we plan to expand to 60+ families and 5 locations. Our heartfelt thanks once again for your trust and support. 

    Operations

    In spite of the challenges we have had with restricted movement due to lock-downs, we are glad to inform you that we are on target for our expansions for 2020. 

    We successfully added our third unit at Dodennakundi via partnership with Vidyadhaara Foundation. We now have 11 kids from that community. 

    Meanwhile our Unit 001 - Kadugudi and Unit 002 KR Puram added 12 more children/families into its fold along with brand new staff(s) - Shruthi Arun and Afreen Taj (whom we will introduce in our next edition)

    All our three centers are now digitized via broadband and computers in prep for a future where remote would be the new norm!

    We now have 40 families in 3 locations who are giving us the opportunity to serve them!
