Nothing fires us more than seeing young budding organizations run by equally young individuals with the drive to create change by taking the initiative. i-initiate is one such organization and we are so happy to stand with them to support all their initiatives.
From their website: i-initiate.org:
I-initiate’ is a two year old organization driven by a group of youngsters from Mumbai. ‘I-initiate’ is a youth centric organization functioning in the key areas of development sector. The activities of ‘I-initiate’ focuses on the possible solutions brought out and lead by youth for solving current social challenges. The organization functions in areas of Quality Education, Better Governance and Eco-friendly alternatives. The organization intends to create a network of youngsters across greater Mumbai by initiating innovative and vibrant social enterprise models.
One of their latest projects, ‘Cycle Chalao’ is to address the issue of providing a one stop solution for easing the traffic congestion and pollution clogging up Greater Mumbai and thereby reducing the travel time and health risks posed by routine pollution. Now, isn’t that great? What strikes out most about their initiatives is a practical and phased approach for the implementation.

We at SocialSync would like to wish you and your near and dear ones a Very Happy New Year!
I received this message from a very dear friend of mine and would like to share it with you:
New Year is the time to unfold new horizons & realize new dreams, to rediscover the strength & faith within you, to rejoice in simple pleasures & gear up for new challenges.
This really sums up our feelings as we move from 2008 to 2009. 2008 has been a great year for us:
We see 2009 to be even more exciting as we would engage with many more organizations. More important we would be working closely with you. Going forward we would share with you more about the SocialSync Community Platform and seek your opinion and advice as we build it. We believe a true community platform can be only built by opening up all the channels for the community to contribute and give feedback; which we will. We really want to thank you for signing up for the SocialSync Community Platform and showing your interest.
SocialSync was invited at the 3rd International Conference on Social Entrepreneurship in India held on 4th and 5th December. The conference was organized by UnLtd India and Centre for Social Initiative and Management Supported by CSO Partners. It was a unique opportunity to meet NGOs, social ventures, changemakers and funders all together. The energy at the place was palpable.

In a line: The Karmayog Get-Together was the event to be for everyone involved in the social and developmental sector in India.
It was good meeting people personally and connecting with them in that short time of a few minutes. At the same time it was heartening to see people finding value in SocialSync’s offering. Some walked back to us before leaving the venue and shared their words of encouragement and feedback. Thanks to everyone for making this event really memorable and a great learning experience.
We would like to invite all organizations working for a positive social cause to the Pilot Program.
Some immediate advantages that we see for organization on joining the platform:
- Easily maintainable Web Identity.
- Unlimited pages to share the mission, vision and projects of your organization.
- Blog to connect with your constituencies and share your everyday stories.
- Dynamic News and Events system.
- Web standards and Web 2.0 compliant system (Ajax, CSS, XHTML).

As we have just initiated our Pilot Program we would also like to extend features like:
