Serving as the Senior Manager HR at the West Bokaro division of Tata Steel, Shreya has been volunteering since her MBA days, where she worked alongside CRY. Her responsibilities include taking care of the entire life cycle of the employees in her division. This made her an ideal candidate to work alongside an NGO due to her well developed interpersonal skills. Shreya has always had a knack for arts and crafts and loves to spend her weekends painting, thus the logo designing project on the ProEngage platform caught her eye. As someone who believes “One should always be a student”, she wanted to invest her free time in personal development while creating an impact, and taking up a ProEngage project fit both criteria.
Mayank is currently working in the capacity of Scientific Business Ambassador at Inzpera Health Sciences. This project was his first foray into the world of volunteering. Having previously done freelance work in the fields of digital marketing and graphic design, the logo designing project for Marpu foundation checked all of his boxes in terms of how he could contribute to the project. Mayank’s reasoning for taking volunteering was clear - he possessed certain skills that he wanted to utilise to help society. At the same time, he also wanted to test his capabilities, to see how useful they are when applied in different fields, and how they could be put to use for the benefit of an organisation like Marpu
Founded by Karmaveer Chakra Awardee Raghu Vamsi, Marpu Foundation is an entirely student and youth run organisation. Youth empowerment through community services is one of the major drives at Marpu, their goal being to make today's youth more socially responsible. The organisation undertakes various initiatives including campaigns and sessions on empowering adolescents, classes on life skills for schools, tree and heritage site preservation projects. During the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown, the team at Marpu took on the responsibility of feeding the needy, by providing more than 16000 meals across the city, and then further extended their services to providing masks and sanitisers as well as conducting several safety awareness sessions across the state.
