Host more fund-raising events AND hearing/public events (I had given a few ideasto Gaurav since he is our fund-raising coordinator)15. Try to get Nepali deafies to join MSADA (I heard there are at least 2 or 3 deafNepali out there in the Greater DC areas)16. We should travel to one of those South Asian countries to visit Deaf school(s) andto expose them about Gallaudet University
17. To raise more funds for additional scholarships, host our international MSADAconferences, set up more sign language interpreter trainings in South Asia, and to setup VRS centers (as per Hatims idea)18. Try to host at least one General Meeting during the academic year including apresentation.19. Build collaborations with other South Asian organizations (e.g. SAALT) as well asthe Indian Embassy, and consider hosting joint events with them in order to increaseawareness among the South Asian (hearing) population about our organization.20. Identify areas where MSADA can support other Deaf people of South Asiandescent. For example, we can increase the scope of the MSADA scholarship atGallaudet, and pick two or three schools of the deaf in India that we can support overthe long term.
