A team from JUAAH will visit to one of the identified villages to explore on micro-details and understand the basic needs. Installation of bore-well in this area, where there is scarcity of water, and supporting some primary schools are activities, which were given a ground-thought by members. This is also an appeal to members, in general, for their concurrence and involvement in such mission.

The choice of topics will depend on the type of workshop and audience. There are prominent industry practitioners in JUAAH, who can be speakers in these sessions.
    3. It was also discussed if we can collaborate with educational institutions in and around Hyderabad to organize industry awareness and career management programs. The proposal was to start in a small way, and looking at  the response, we shall explore on wider range. It was also pointed out, during our discussions, that this idea needs further planning -- whether opportunities of such nature exists and whether JUAAH can really scale up to participate in such forums. Members are requested to come up with more viable details so that such Workshops can be given a proper shape.
