The JJSS had committed to joining the rally planned in Delhi for 2nd December in thousands and this meant mobilizing both members and also financial resources. It was decided that in the executive meeting held on 15th 16th November, each active village unit would be given a donation box and asked to try and raise 2500 rupees. 50 boxes were sent out, so far 36 boxes have come back and 44,514 rupees have been collected, less than the expected amount none the less an important contribution. Other than putting in donations in the boxes saathis also raised their own travel funds and money for food stocks to last them till they reached Delhi. In addition to this we are thankful to all of you who gave us matching funds, for each box. Further accounts are given below:
|Expense||1st April, 2013 to December 2014||1st April 2012 to 31st March 2013|
|Office||175759(includes purchase of 3 mega mikes @Rs. 3700 approx)||11990|

|Pension Parishad campaign||0||26419|

|Video and phorography||0||6500|
Total Expected Expense = 972557/-
So far we have raised 5,00,000 rupees and another 88,000 from membership fees, that leaves us Rs 3,84,557 short of our needs to keep the sangathan going till 31st March, 2014.
We would really appreciate your support. Infact it is much needed, the sangathan is growing – sangharsh and nirman hand in hand but this means more expenses and with rising ‘mehangaee’ more so!
- Taking forward the coming together of movements
- Participating in the common organizing in Delhi during the budget session
- Continuing sangharsh and nirman activities in the sangathan area
- Strengthening organic leadership and building a caste, class, gender, minorities lense within the sangathan
