As I write this message, there is much change and promise of progress and development around us. There are fresh faces heading our government and we expect rapid growth in all areas, as the development sector continues to do its best for bringing about social change in India. Joining hands encourages volunteers to contribute their time, skills and energies to enhance the work being carried out at the grass root level. We are happy to record that in this year since our inception, we have grown from placing a handful of volunteers/interns with partner NGOs, to forging new collaborations, partnerships and programmers in order to strengthen our volunteer programme. Young people are the strength and as set of a nation, and it is in the age bracket of 18-35 years that the maximum
number of our volunteers/interns come. The largest number of these are
postgraduates who have contributed to programmes that fitted their
specialization or abilities best. Their contribution directly impacts the lives of many with whom they interact. It is heartening to note that the ratio of
women volunteers/interns is steadily increasing.
Our mission is directed towards bringing about positive social change. Through our training workshops we influence volunteers and groups/communities within which they work, and encourage them to contribute to the development sector. By consolidating activities and expanding our collaborations, we strive to add value to the work of partner NGOs. I would like to thank all our committed volunteers, partner NGOs, supporters , trainers and the joining hands for all their hard work and dedication, in particular Spiritual Yoga Ashram (SYA) staff and my
fellow trustees. Best wishes….
Thanks & Regards,
