Nayana has 16 years of experience in human resources and participated in ProEngage before, on a similar project requiring her HR expertise. Her first involvement in volunteering was through work - she was assigned to manage CSR in her company. Then she realised there are so many organizations that need professional help and employees, besides providing their skills can benefit from these programs by broadening their horizons, learning to work with different set of people and giving back to society.
Satish is a first-time ProEngager, hence he decided to apply for a project that he felt confident about finishing and providing a value. He wanted to learn how this skill-based volunteering program is conducted as before he did only onsite volunteering that involved rain water conservation. He had a bit of knowledge about policies from the past and thought it’s a great idea to help an NGO that doesn’t have anyone to help them with these policies. He wanted to be fully committed and capable for the project.
