Project ROAD - TZM India

Hi there!

One of the volunteers from TZM India named Rohan d'Souza has come up with a brilliant plan to take TZM ahead, something he calls Project ROAD (Result Oriented Awareness of Decision-Makers). 

The idea is simple: gather a group of people, prepare crisp presentations on the main thesis of TZM and show them to Political/Administrative Leaders, particularly those who have the decision-making power with them (hence, the name ROAD). The ideology behind doing this is that it would be more effective to explain it to influential people and let it trickle down to the masses rather than trying to spread awareness through local means (however, people are not discouraged to engage in the latter).

A message from Rohan (the initiator of this project) can be seen below in Italics:

Dear Friends,
I would like to introduce myself as Rohan DSouza, a civil engineer from Mumbai. I am planning to do something on the result oriented awareness front.
The idea is to form a sort of delegation and meet Influential ministers and MPs over a period of time. We will share our TZM ideology and offer a concrete practical solution or model along with a budget requirement and time frame. 
Convincing a decision maker is like convincing a thousand lay people. If we consistently  pursue the awareness and education of those in power to take the decisions, we shall with time be able to reach this stage. I believe that “ Whatever the mind can dream, conceive and believe, it can achieve”. Lets not limit ourselves and our potential. ‘The world makes way for the man who knows where he is going’. 

We need to work on
1.The delegation team – I am in and would require your help. Our time is required on a case basis whenever we get a lead or chance to give a presentation. We just form the team and keep ready
2.The presentation content – Most of it is already there
3.The Solution or Model – Need your ideas here. We need to know what we exactly expect from them, a key policy or maybe we can erect a model, the budget might run into thousands of crores, doesn’t matter, thousands of crores are spent on useless welfare schemes each year, let them take a call
4.Setting up appointments with key people – We can all use our circle of influence and ‘six degrees of separation’ principle states that we are only 6 or less steps away by way of introduction to any person anywhere on the planet. Local MPs can be reached with much ease.

The success of this project/idea depends completely upon the number and dedication of people who are willing to be a part of this. Those who wish to volunteer, kindly click on the link below and fill in the form. An update will be sent out shortly after reviewing the submissions.
