I would like to inform you that beginning of December 1, 2009 Birendra Kumar, our Regional Coordinator for India, agreed to serve on our Executive Team as an Assistant Facilitator responsible for coordination of work of Regional Coordinators for Asia and the Pacific. His other responsibility will be to expand partnerships with universities and international organizations acting in Asia, as well as to invite Asian community organizations to join our network.
I also welcome Robby Uppal who joined our team last week. Robby will coordinate search for sponsors and funding, assist in development of partnerships with national and international organizations and help in strategic planning of UCP-SARnet development. Robby has not long but very interesting leadership, volunteering and work experience that fits very well to our current needs and plans.
With his person the amount of team members of Indian descend has increased to 6 persons (Rajesh Jangareddy, Smitha Kammath, Birendra Kumar, Poorve Patel, Nikhil Srdihar and Robby Uppal.)
