Annual Report 2001-2002

2001-2002 in Review

The 2001-2002 financial year was a quiet year for KARNA, early part of the financial year the world was devastated by the horrific terrorist attacks in USA. KARNA Board decided that considering the gravity of the situation it was best to let the charitable public focus all their resources to the victims of 9/11. The year in summary was spent in further reducing the small operational costs that KARNA has, finding more cost-effective ways of managing the operations.

KARNA Inc. piloted the two college scholarships this year. The process, forms etc. was tweaked as we went through the process making it easier on the students as well as the board. VJTI was a great success both from an application quality as well as college participation and commitment standpoint.

The pilot at DCE was not very successful, mainly related to lack of college commitment. Another attempt will be made with DCE in the 2002-2003 year.

Based on the lessons learned and the level of success achieved the Board has decided that this is a viable proposition and holds a lot of promise for the youth of the future. Significant efforts will be put in to continue the focus on expanding the scholarship program. The goal for 2002-2003 is to expand the program to at least 15 honor/memorial scholarships.
