Priya as part of her regular job works on strategy implementation projects for the various companies that fall within the Tata group. Social work and welfare had been a part of her life since her childhood and she has constantly made efforts to contribute during her school and college days. On hearing about ProEngage, she realized that she could contribute while working too and thus decided to become a ProEngager. Growing old is a phenomenon that we all can witness and as we grow up, those around us age too. Priya wanted to do something for the people who are aging and hopes to work in this field in the future. Thus, She took up this project as her first ProEngage project.
Soon after graduating from IIT Delhi as a mechanical engineer, Ichchhit joined Tata Projects and was part of the business development department. During his days at Tata, He came across the ProEngage platform that allowed employees to give back to their community. Ichchhit has a soft spot for the elderly people of our society and feels that the youth must work to give them a life of dignity and respect. As his first ProEngage project, this one was ideal as it meant that he would be able to contribute toward helping the elderly and abandoned. Ichchhit has left Tata to pursue a few other interests to build his career.
