Currently working as an Operations Manager at Tata Steel at a Coal Preparation Unit in Dhanbad, Mohit manages a team of 67 where his primary duties are ensuring that shifts are rostered as per need and ensuring everything is fit between control parameters, without any discrepancies. Mohit has been involved in volunteering activities to his best capacity since he was a student. He previously worked with community projects in the sector of quality education and coaching students to be better athletes. He contributed his share of work as a graphic designer and handled digital marketing for the AIESEC wing at his university. This prior experience and skills obtained through these programs are what drew Mohit to take up his first project at ProEngage. His idea was to contribute in whatever capacity possible as his skill set was a match and he knew that his sister, Jahnvi was also good at this, so he roped her in and that’s how they ended up as co-volunteers!
Jahnvi was a final year student at Indian Institute of Technology, Dhanbad when she first applied for this project. Right out of college, she was hired by Ernst & Young where she is currently working as an Associate Consultant in climate change and sustainability services. Her job mostly involves giving sustainability advice to companies across different sectors. Jahnvi really enjoys doing so as she feels she’s contributing her bit in making the world more sustainable. Jahnvi has vast experience in physical volunteering since her college days. She has conducted numerous plantation drives and made donations before. Post lockdown, she didn’t find many opportunities for physical volunteering, which is why she was super intrigued when Mohit introduced the idea of online volunteering to her. It didn’t take long for Jahnvi to sign up for this project after, the idea was simple - she enjoys designing generally and she got an opportunity to help out an NGO, so why not!
Abhivyakti started as an informal group of young social activists to promote social and cultural activities within Giridih district, Jharkhand, which had a long void after its glorious past. They operate in a few other districts around Jharkhand in full spectrum. Their basic idea is to strengthen the local governing system and promote sustainable development practices. They stay motivated everyday by following the motto - “Listen to those people who remain unheard.”
