Hi everyone,

We launched on 29 January on our blog and social media:

This was picked up on various tech sites in several languages, and our
Telegram group grew to over 200 members within the first day. (Currently
it has 366 members.) The start on Telegram was a bit bumpy, with lots of
people joining and asking questions unrelated to the goal of getting
younger people involved, but thanks to Sophie, Marina and others, we
managed to maintain the focus.

Since then, a number of ideas and proposals have come up, including:

* Create certificate for skills: creating presentations, spreadsheets,

* Provide materials for local training in schools, universities etc.

* Set up a contest (eg Python macro programming) with rewards

* Set up a survey for students and teachers to spread around on campus

* Create flyers and posters for students to distribute

* Use Open Badges to reward contributors and confirm their work

* Investigate Paytm, PhonePe, RuPay, WhatsApp and Google Pay as donation

In the coming weeks I'll work on these, and contact people in the group
who've offered to help out in their schools and universities.

Thanks to everyone involved -- we appreciate your help! :-)
