I am a part of Katalyst [Pune] program for last two years.Katalyst helped me financially as well as improved my communicating skills through different workshops. I joined various English spoken classes,personality development courses through Katalyst which is the reason that today I am a confident girl and I have stage daring.Through this program we got to know many persons from different industries who are working as mentors for some of us which is really a encouraging thing. I am very happy that I am a part of this innovative program.

I first got introduced to Katalyst two and a half years ago. Given that I work with the Citizenship department of a Multi National Company, the first meeting was a professional introductary meeting. What I found most inetresting is the concept of mentoring. I, therefore decided to mentor two of Katalysts, bright ladies. Two years into the program it has been a great learing experience for me. Katalyst has played a critical role in putting a structure to this very important initiative. Mentoring can go a long way in shaping ones carrier but to have a successful mentoring program running for a longer time is indeed a commendable achievement.

I found Third Sector Partners, pleasant and professional. The team handled sensitive issues in a manner that was courteous but thorough. They combine technical skills with the ability to keep commitments. From a distance, my respect for TSP grew when I saw them being invited (by the client), to sit with their Board and decide on final selections. I believe they will succeed in building their business because they place a premium, on relationships.

I’m Navya jyothi and I have completed my graduation from Sri Venkateshwara College of Engineering. I'm associated with KATALYST from past 6 months. Katalyst is helping me in pursuing my post graduation and also in finding jobs. Apart from financial assistance as any other NGOs do Katalyst stands unique because of its training sessions such as classes on communication skills, personality development, aptitude classes, C classes and on life skills etc. I have also joined vani institute of technology for GATE coaching through Katalyst. Katalyst also has a mentorship program in which each student has a mentor who provides us guidance on finding jobs and other communication skills. Katalyst is mainly for meritorious girls. I’m grateful and consider myself fortunate to be a part of Third Sector Partners.

Katalyst is not just a scholarship program. It works towards empowering under privileged girls to become mature, successful individuals in their fields. It focuses on the individual as a whole. It organises several soft skills training (communication skills) and educational training (plant visits) programs. Additionally, each student has a Mentor, someone who can guide the student in various walks of life. Students get to interact & receive support and guidance from individuals outside their communities and have an exposure to a new set of experiences and perspectives. Katalyst also serves as a channel for Mentors to contribute to the society. Katalyst provides assistance in personality development and career guidance. The Katalyst team takes personal interest in each student and have a very transparent and fair process.

I am involved as a volunteer and have been very happy with their selection of students to whom they have to provide benefits. I am also happy with the fact that they are helping disadvantaged women students with overall development. They also regularly follow up to ensure that volunteers put in the required amount of effort and the efforts are bearing fruit.

Katalyst has been providing scholarships to a number of needy and poor girl students of our college. Education of a girl child and her empowerment is important for creating a healthy society. Katalyst is not only merely empowering but trying to make girl students take up higher education like engineering and be equal to boys in every respect. The soft skills, additional tools required for enhancing job potential of a candidate are also arranged by bringing in experts and training the girl students. Another important feature is arranging get togethers visits to nearby plants has beeb adding great value and potential of the students. The change observed in these girl students year after year has been phenomenal. The concept of mentorship and association with senior faculty of the institute as mentors with some of these selected scholars gets them further impetus in their growth.
