New member in ALFA family

It all began a long time ago. Munis Makrani is a valuable addition to our team who knows ALFA from top to bottom. Started his journey as a local volunteer in 2010, he got involved in all the interventions and programs of Sanjha Manch, community name of ALFA. Munis, one of the survivors of Godhra riots, fled to Rajasthan with his family to escape the communal barbarity of 2002 while he was a small kid. Since then he has been brought up in Karawara village of Kherwara block, Udaipur.

He used to come to ALFA to chill out and spend time with volunteers who came from different parts of the world. Gradually as he grew up, he became sensitive to Hindu Muslim conflicts and opposed violence and discrimination on the grounds of caste and religion. His engagement with ALFA got deeper and he immersed himself in spreading the message of peace and love among diverse communities. He was one of the very active and passionate youth volunteers of ALFA. He attended various workshops and training organized by ALFA and has been to different parts of India to learn more about different ways and perspectives to approach the problems of society. He has been to various internships and became Youth Facilitator after undergoing a long journey with the organization. He conducted computer classes of local youth and has also worked in the past with us for a short period of 3 months while he was studying in University.

"I worked on the ground on grave issues of the community with ALFA. I feel proud to be associated with the organization due to which I was able to realize my dream of becoming a teacher. Even with my current profile, I will be engaged with children imparting quality education and creative learning.
-Munis Makrani
It is a pleasure to have him back on the board. 😊
