DOBARA 2020 in Review

2020 was quite a year. Yet, as a group, we made the best of it.

Here are some of the highlights, DOBARA 2020 in Review :

With 1 Main DOBARA FAMILY Group and multiple off-shoots including the Quiz Team, Knit and Crochet Club, and others... we are a happy group of 250 Members from all over the world, and from all age groups!

A recent group poll shows that the most popular age range in this group is 60 to 70.

While we were mostly unable to go out and help during this difficult year, we pooled our resources together and contributed towards helping our partners in their Pandemic Relief and Flood Relief Efforts. So in our special way, the members of DOBARA worked together to help those most in need.

We collaborated with several organizations and individuals in order to get groceries, ration kits, temporary housing, and essential services to those most in need during this year.

Apart from the Volunteers at DOBARA, here are a few of our partners :

Hyderabad Urban Lab

Hyderabad Flood Relief Coalition

Unique Child Care

Good Universe NGO

Oh Scrap Madras

Shakti Shifa Foundation

Aamer Jaaved

This year, with our Virtual Wellbeing Program, we had to improvise and so with a brainwave from our Star Volunteer Riyaz, of GLOBAL SHORES , we started our very own Virtual Tambola Group in July 2020. This group meets on Whatsapp every Sunday at 3pm and plays a fun game organised by Riyaz. The excitement for this game comes from the Sponsors who provide prizes for the winners every week.
