Sai IT

With swami’s infinite grace, the IT wing of SSSSO Palakkad is very active now in the district. Ever since the

inception of IT wing, the volunteers are engaged in all organizational activities in all areas like reporting,

promotions, digitizing the balvikas, SAI ONE registrations, online meetings etc., we are trying our

maximum to automate all the organizational processes. Giving below some of the achievements and

innovative ideas which we have implemented in our district so far.

Website updates

The district website is up to date with all activity reports.

Digital Balvikas

Power point presentations (in English) of Balvikas chapters (Group I) to attract the kids to balvikas.

The PPTs will have the sloka, its meaning, stories related to it, pictures, bhajans, value songs and

value games. We have also started using the content in 2 - 3 balvikas classes. The response was very

positive.

A collection of animated videos of Value stories which could be used by the Gurus for the students.

Reporting

The reporting has now become very smart and hence all the activities are getting reported correctly by any

of the respective samithi members.

Thursday Headlines

A newsletter named ‘Thursday Headlines’ is being published since August on all Thursdays. A new system

which would give a clear idea of what all happening in our district.

District meeting in a different way

The IT wing has taken few steps to digitize the district meetings. Previous month evaluation, current

month Agenda, Snaps of some special activities will be projected on the screen. The meeting has become a

different experience for the members. We decided to give a new face for the meetings because of the

following reasons.

Office bearers will get a clear idea as of what all happening in the district

First step towards making the meeting ‘Paperless’

Members would come up saying there function is not been shown which would be because they

would have forgotten to put the snaps and reports In the Whatsapp groups or other social media.

By seeing this, they would also rethink and start posting their samithi activities.

This also brings more attention in the meeting since the office bearers will not be provided with the

hardcopy of the Agenda and hence they will have to pen down every points.
