SPICE – Software Professionals Empowering Community Empowerment, is an initiative which is being carried out by Software professionals. The primary goal of this initiative is to take initiatives to help social causes. I got involved with this initiative in August, 2011 where we collaborated with numerous volunteers and organisations and empowered them to bring about changes in society.
One such initiative was to teach under privileged children. We visited the Olcott Memorial High School , Chennai on Weekends and taught basic English and Maths and provided Digital Literacy by organising various programs and using Technology.
We also conducted a stationary collection drive where we collected stationery from colleagues at Verizon and distributed them to many Orphanages and Schools who were delighted to see the efforts and accepted our small contributions with gratitude.
