Message from the Founders — September 2020

To our ConnectFor Community,

Hello, readers!

Yet again, a month full of reaching new milestones, putting new ideas to actions and a power packed month of engagement and collaboration has passed.

As we delve deeper into our expertise of curating Employee Volunteering Policies and Programmes for corporates across India, our intent to successfully alleviate the challenges of remote working include assisting our corporate clients in creating maximum social impact, engaging the employees, enhancing employees’ skill sets and knowledge to create stronger teams.

We truly believe that weaving the volunteering journeys of any organization for a seamless virtual volunteering experience requires a thorough needs assessment survey to identify individual volunteering needs, cause preferences and the volunteers’ motives for volunteering. Our experiences of working with multiple global corporate organizations have enhanced our abilities to draft volunteering policies, devise Employees’ Rewards & Recognitions Programme, garner employee volunteering interests for short-term and long-term volunteering opportunities, connect volunteers to relevant volunteering projects, track individual volunteering journeys and impact, and communicate results through active reporting.

Our switch to a virtual landscape has definitely been a challenging one. However, constant support from our corporate partners and volunteers towards the success of our Phone Schooling Campaign has resulted in a bridging the digital divide that was witnessed by non profit organisations across India.

Therefore, our ethos to forge a volunteering culture at corporate organizations, stems from promoting real commitment from the volunteers along with a plethora of innovative and impactful opportunities to make the effects of virtual volunteering visible and noticeable.

Best,

Shloka Ambani & Maniti Shah
