House building in Mexico

HI All, with regards to high school volunteering, any groups here in San Ramon planning house building in Mexico this summer. Please respond if there is an existing group that my family could join. Alternately, I am interested in starting a new group if we can get some interested families.  This house building volunteering event is organized by www.doxaserves.org  (Non Profit at Seattle building homes for 25+ years).
Please let me know if there is any interest,
Cheers,
Albert.

Now a site like TriValleyDesi.com for the Fremont area – TriCityDesi.com

Over last year or so, as the user base of this site neared 2500, there were a few posts coming from the Tri-City area of Fremont, Newark, and Union City as well. That someone should set up a site for that area as well became a refrain I would hear again and again, in emails and discussions. So come January 2017, and we have created TriCityDesi.com, on the same pattern. Some posts have also been moved to this new site to seed it.

TriCityDesi.com is rooted in the success and usefulness of TriValleyDesi.com. The premise is the same: an area with a lot of Indians, but who are not connected well, so not able to help each other. No one can deny the benefits and use of a well-moderated message-board, but there is nothing stopping the community to air any kind of content. There are more than 150 different categories, and more are being continuously added.

A community site can only be as good as the participation it receives from the community. So please do reach out to your friends in the tri-city area. The new site will also get as good a moderation and user-support as this one. TriCityDesi.com is set up to be a totally separate site. New users, new posts, new ads. We believe in keeping it very local so that it can stay vibrant, and useful for the community.

In case you have something to post, please login here: http://www.tricitydesi.com/wp-login.php.
Again, Tri-City area consists of Fremont (including communities of Centerville, Niles, Irvington, Mission San Jose, and Warm Springs), Newark and Union City. In case you are looking for to post with respect to Tr-Valley area, please continue to use www.trivalleydesi.com.

Desis in Livermore?

New to Bay area ,We are a family with two kids ( 6 and 3 year old), I work in Pleasanton and my husband works in Cupertino. We are considering buying a single family house in south Livermore area (Sunset elementary or Emma Smith elementary) . We will feel a lot more confident about our decision to buy in Livermore if we knew of few Indian families in the area. How are these schools in comparison to Pleasanton and Dublin schools? Any other Pros and Cons of buying a home in Livermore? Thanks in advance for your inputs.
