South Asia Selects A New Batch of Local Coordinators
The Local Coordinators are a significant aspect of the liberty movement in South Asia. From conducting events, to organising Colloquia – a majority of the groundwork is done with their support.
After a rigorous academic training which laster for five weeks, South Asia selected her new batch of Local Coordinators, consisting of 85 applicants from across the South Asian diaspora. These applicants come from a variety of countries including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal and India. A majority of the cities in these countries, have not had any representation from SFL previously and we are glad that we have been able to expand the movement to these areas.
Currently, the preparation for the Local Coordinator Retreat, is on in full swing. The LC Retreat will be held in New Delhi on the 19th and 20th August, along with a separate retreat for the 15 applicants from Pakistan to be held in Islamabad in September.In the meantime, the LC’s are undergoing a one-week Activism Training to familiarise them with SFL’s history, mission, vision and previous experiences in different regions of the world.
In another news, SASFL’s work received a small mention in St. Francis College, Hyderabad’s yearbook. This adds another feather to the hats of the Hyderabad 2016-17 team, which won the International Student Group of the Year Award.
