The increase in volunteers for ADP in Pakistan as well as the need to have a bigger team of people in lahore has been prompting us to think of creating a chapter in Lahore. There was a meeting in Lahore on Saturday in which Angbeen, Ahsen (our 2 interns), Natasha and Ayesha (2 aspiring ADP volunteers), Mubarik and myself took part. We discussed the roles and responsibilities for the Lahore Chapter to focus on.

The Lahore chapter will be having project and membership teams. We will be scouting for projects, gauging NGO credibility, meeting with NGO's to clarify project proposals, keeping in contact with the NGO after the project is over and also working on increasing the ADP team here in Lahore through internship programs and spreading the word as much as possible.

What would be quite helpful is to have ADP flyers or pamphlets. I believe something of that sort has already been done. If those could be sent to me via fax/email/mail, it'd be really helpful to our plans of doing school/college presentations.

Any comments/suggestions/views on the subject will be greatly appreciated.

Sajjad,

That's great news. You guys rock for taking the initiative. We do have ADP flyers/brochures here, though they may need some modification for Pakistan. Omar/Justin have the latest copy, so one of them should be able to send along an electronic version soon.

Have you guys decided on major next steps? I have a couple of suggestions:

1. Give this some real shape through an outline/plan on paper. This would include things such as the working model (including communication process with US chapters), specific roles assigned to folks, plan for first year etc.

2. Have the new Lahore folks do introductions on the forums. A profile in the membershp section would be a start, though of course we'd hope they participate more broadly.

Do let us know how the US folks can help. All of you should feel free to e-mail anyone here if we can do anything. Maham, Danish, Mahjabeen and I are in the throes of launching a chapter ourselves in the Bay Area, so we would love to share ideas/learnings with you.

Cheers,
Tarim

This is a great step, Sajjad! We have been needing this kind of presence for a long time, and the rapidly increasing involvement of Pakistan based volunteers such as yourself has been of huge benefit to ADP already.

Connecting with Tarim, Maham, Danish, and Mahjabeen(SF chapter), and Khurram (DC chapter) sounds like the best next step. In addition to everything Tarim has suggested, you will need to help us navigate any legal hurdles. I'm not sure if anybody has begun researching this in Pakistan. If not, you may be able to ask for some help/guidance from Sarah Karim, Impak Co-Director and ADP member. Let me know if you need any help getting in touch with her. She may be monitoring this string already...

In the interim, all of the Lahore members should be able work fully through the Boston chapter. Let us know how we can help facilitate this.

Great work!

~Justin
