I am a Mumbai-based Journalist, and have visited Saath in August 2009. We have featured Saath as one of 50 Social Enterprises who are making a positive contribution to the society. I have covered few of the initiatives through my story ( http://business.outlookindia.com/article.aspx?261369 ).Individually, I feel that the various initiatives of Saath reflected in the confidence of few of the beneficiary members I met and interacted with. The programmes like Umeed-Udaan, Urmila are not just employment generators. But they are also a great help to the society outside the Saath family. Samvaad, is a brilliant embracement of technology and will bring a big change in the time to come. However, the Samvaad team has to be little more market savvy, to become self-sustaining. Overall, I feel Saath is a institution in itself. Not corporate, but truly corporatised.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
in terms of Umeed-Udaan, I was impressed by the positive feedback I got from Eureka Forbes Limited's Regional HR Chief. They have been hiring candidates of the program for some time and are happy that there is hardly any churn among those candidates.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
very confident and focussed.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
change the shape of India's urban landscape. They have the lots of ways and limited means to address urban poverty, eye to eye.
