    As your communities NGOs grow on social networks so does your online donor community she said Mansfield was speaking at a workshop on Social Media for Social Good in New Delhi The workshop was conducted by Nasscom Foundation in collaboration with Microsoft The biggest and the universal challenge for NGOs all over the world is capacity There is not a dedicated staff person who has the time to invest in the dynamics of social media It requires time to run a Facebook page to study Twitter to learn YouTube So it makes sense if the Nonprofits are geared up to meet the latest challenges in tapping the resources of social media in an efficient way Mansfield explained Rita Soni CEO of Nasscom Foundation said Social media in India is in the purview of individuals Nonprofits on the other hand are engaged in the development of the entire nation So the purpose is to engage NGOs to help them build their capacities in implementing their mission by leveraging the tools of social media like Pinterest LinkedIn YouTube Flickr Tumblr Myspace Rahul Gupta from an NGO Teach Your Child Foundation who attended the workshop said the six crore users of Facebook in India make it a significant platform for showcasing the visibility of an organisation There is a lot of maths and analytics which drives the content on Facebook and learning about these things in detail has given me a new insight about how to increase the followers he said Hitika Ahuja from a Delhi based NGO Operation ASHA that works on eradicating tuberculosis said that many people associated with their organisation including donors and interns are regular on social media This workshop educated me on certain specifics like using colon while updating Facebook which shall be helpful in giving better exposure

    TERI said The SootSwap application developed is not a major invention but a small gadget that has the potential to take some first steps in mitigating the drudgery of rural women I am confident that it has the potential to take a giant leap in transforming the lives of women who spend hours in a smoky kitchen tending to the basic nutritional needs of their families At a cost of approximately US 50 US 100 Rs 2700 5500 each clean cookstoves are currently unaffordable for the estimated three billion people worldwide living on less than USD 2 a day Registered carbon credit programs are beginning to provide financial incentives for reducing carbon emissions through the use of clean cookstoves Estimates suggest that a family could earn enough money selling carbon credits on the carbon market to directly finance the purchase price of a clean cookstove within two to five years through a loan However it is difficult and expensive to verify the reduction in carbon emissions produced by clean cookstoves making it a challenge to apply carbon credits to the use of improved cooking technologies To address this issue the SootSwap system includes a mobile phone based temperature sensing application and a thermal sensor that connects to a Brew CDMA or Android phone Each time the cookstove is fired up the temperature increase activates the sensor This temperature data is then wirelessly uploaded from the cellphone to a server where it is analyzed to indicate the number of times a stove is used and the duration of each use enabling remote verification of stove usage This capability will create an opportunity to make data available to carbon market investors as proof of reduction in carbon emissions Investors can then purchase the validated credits and transmit money directly to the families
