ADECOM and Kotukkural teams welcomed two volunteers from Planete Urgence for two weeks of trainings. Anthony Personeni from France taught MS Office and Internet to a group of 10 students at the Kotukkural office in Pondicherry. Yigit Turhan from Italy taught Web Log & Social Media Networks to the ADECOM team. On August 15th, after two weeks, we all gathered at the Kotukkural office for the distribution of our certificates. It was the independence day of India and the committee talked about the freedom. Mr. Perumal stated that India got its freedom but the oppressed communities are still not free and there are lots of things to do: the freedom starts with knowledge and both teams -Kotukkural & ADECOM- do anything possible from skill training to internet classes to legal advice. Ms. Lalidamballe discussed the importance of blogs and social media networks. All students were happy when she informed that the knowledge she gained from Yigit will be transfered to the students in future classes. Mr. Yigit discussed the importance of storytelling and how it might be hard to change the past but the future can be reshaped. Everybody has a unique story and internet is a powerful tool to raise awareness about these stories. Mr. Anthony discussed the importance of MS. Office and skills for finding new jobs. 15 students and team members benefited from the volunteer programs of Planete Urgence and we look forward to receive more international volunteers in the upcoming months. Please check the volunteers page for more information. Thanks.
