Amar Varanasi

Assalam Aleikum wa rahamatullahi wa barakathuhu. Alhamdulillah, all praises to Allah SWT and salutations to the messenger of Allah (PBUH)

I, Amar Varanasi have been living in Collin County for more than 10 years. I’m a regular patron to IACC mosque. I belong to Hyderabad, India. I have master’s degree from Osmania University. I live with My Wife and 12 year old son.

I have been serving the community through IACC for last 8 years as official volunteer. I’m engaged in Matrimonial committee as volunteer.  By far, as IACC Matrimonial services, we had brought forward yearly events to the community for last 7 years with a great team effort and received success stories and testimonials.

Over the past years, IACC has grown rapidly with lot of new neighbors relocated from various other states within the US, while the needs of community also grown substantially.  I lately realized, the current set up needs expansion in terms of providing services to the community. It is only possible while the community engages at a larger scale. But lack of participation from community will not help us a few individuals in shura or volunteer groups would not change the situation of the community.

My profound thought process and observation, brings me to the following conclusion that will help all the community develop at large and in a sustained manner.

  1. Engaging and training  youth for effective leadership
  2. Modernizing and leveraging IT for effective management of resources
  3. Promoting youth  and women for more volunteer hours for community assistance and growth
  4. Creating a consortium for safe guarding the Teachers, so that our kids can get continuous quarnic education
  5.  Engaging more professional health care providers , legal workers and other social service providers for helping the community by increasing the  professional volunteer hours

All the above initiatives will not be successful without community engagement.  This will need a progressive leadership, thought leadership. I will bring this part from my experience. Since, I have been a working professional for last 20 years, I managed teams of thought leadership and engineering across the globe. Volunteered substantial hours working with community members from various walks of life.
