Currently working as the Manager, HR at Titan, Nirjhari has a lot of experience managing an employee’s life cycle, working on performance management and employee grievance handling. Volunteering has always been a passion of hers. As a part of the CSR cell in college, she helped to implement a program that enabled college students working for businesses to donate their salary to nonprofits. After settling in her new job, Nirjhari was excited to learn about the opportunity to volunteer through ProEngage. The idea of donating her skills and not just time was appealing. She believes that with skill-based volunteering one can create a longer-lasting impact on the organization. Her vast knowledge of and experience working in HR made her the ideal candidate for this project.
Currently a Product Manager at Tata AIG General Insurance, Jatin’s been responsible for encouraging the organization to adapt a start-up culture, and promote innovation among different departments. Although this ProEngage project marked his first official volunteering experience, he has previously worked with AIESEC Kolkata, where he looked after foreign students coming to India for internships. With the outbreak of Covid-19, Jatin noticed people around him going through mental health issues. Being through hard times himself, he decided to register at a helpline to help those in need. At this time he understood he could be doing more than that. Encouraged by his supervisor, Jatin finally chose to become a ProEngager. Given his previous experience in AIESEC, this project seemed like a perfect fit.
Committed Communities Development Trust is a grassroots level NGO located in Mumbai looking after the needs of maternal and child health and nutrition of marginalized families and the community they live in. Upon its inception in 1990, CCDT was one of the few NGOs in the area that assisted individuals affected by leprosy, and over the years, child protection, maternal and child health and nutrition and adolescent/youth empowerment emerged as the key focus areas of CCDT’s intervention programs. One of the primary CCDT’s beliefs is that working with children in isolation cannot create a lasting change, therefore the organisation undertakes a holistic approach of working with the community and various other stakeholders in order to supplement the overall development of the child.
