Taking the open web to the streets among kids and youth, MozGuj (Mozilla Gujarat) today hosted FoxYeah campaign in Ahmedabad which turned out to be a big success for us.
The event was started with the brief introduction of Mozilla and its mission of open and privacy protected web. The audience was then informed of Mozilla Gujarat, its objectives and its activities. After the introduction session, our team about web privacy, its importance and Mozilla’s efforts in making the privacy better for web users.
We then talked about web literacy. Our team also informed the audience (children, youth and adult people) about the importance of web literacy and why it is necessary for the strong and brighter future.
We then kick started the main activity of our today’s FoxYeah campaign by inviting children and young participants to draw the pictures and put their creativity to promote FoxYeah.
We were really amazed with the huge and brilliant response to the drawing competition!
The children were really making it a big show with their excellent drawing on FoxYeah theme.
The participants included children, school & college going students as well as professionals, noble citizens and educators who were all enthusiastic about Mozilla and our events.
We were bit of happily surprised to learn that some of them already knew what is Mozilla’s mission and how to keep it promoting!
Here’re some snapshots from today’s FoxYeah event:
We concluded the event by taking group pictures, exchanging thoughts on different ways to promote Mozilla’s mission and to chit-chat with little tech enthusiastic 🙂

As announced earlier, we hosted our 2nd Meetup yesterday at Qwiches, Ahmedabad and it was just awesome! We are thankfull to each of the attendees for their enthusiasm and keenness in taking Mozilla Gujarat to the next level.
The meetup began with introduction of new Mozillians and soon we started on discussing about ways to promote the community in city and state. We also discussed about Mozilla’s various projects including Firefox OS, FoxYeah, WebMaker and few other. Then we talked a lot on how to encourage local students to join and promote Mozilla. We discussed about various ways we can use to promote Mozilla’s FSA program.
We also discussed about and decied to take the community events to colleges and other educational institutes and to host maker parties so that students and other people who are keen on contributing to technology, can get a platform via Mozilla’s various initiatives.
Finally, seeing the magnificant response to this meetup, we decided to host another introductory meetup next week so that even new Mozillians can get into the community and feel comfortable as they start their contribution.
The greateness of their contribution can be recognized by the fact that some of the Mozillians came across from the out city by travelling 100 and even 200 kilometers! Keep rocking guys!
