I am currently a law enforcement officer and have been attached with Counties Manukau District for 11 years. I have worked with the community for several years and I enjoy to help and work towards community empowerment.
I have been a regular devotee of Bharatiya Mandir ever since I immigrated in New Zealand. My children grew up attending BalVikas classes and the enthusiastic volunteers.
I have recently joined the team of Bharatiya Mandir. My role is to raise funds towards rejuvenating the hall to the standards, where the community can comfortably utilise the venue for various cultural and educational activities.
As a fundraising chair person, my role is to prioritise the most urgent things to be done in the hall. Ensure the resolution is passed in the meeting, apply for the funding to the relevant agencies. Build a positive relationship with the funding agencies and ensuring that all the criteria for the funding agencies are met.
I also ensure that the invoices for audits are maintained and sent to the funding agencies as per the terms and conditions.
I strongly believe that our contribution towards the community is building a stronger base for our next generation.
