Katalyst hopes to staff the world of future management with women leaders of substance.

Third Sector Partner’s mission, “Every Good Deed Deserves Every Good Leader” endeavors to fill the void which has plagued the development sector for many years: quality leadership in top management positions able to influence change. The profits TSP creates are hived back into its home grown initiative “Katalyst” which, in keeping with the spirit of “commitment to core competencies in service of the society”, helps identify talented girls from underprivileged communities and gives them a chance of good life through education, personality development and life skills by enhancing their employability by supporting their higher and professional education. Katalyst hopes to staff the world of future management with women leaders of substance, so that none of this becomes the privilege of a few. Our mission is ensue that the to the domain of talent and leadership search becomes inclusive, self-sustaining and almost a movement. I came in contact with the TSP through their programe to support the meritorious girl stududents from weak financial background. I was very much impressed by their honest and dedicated field staff wo were eager to support the girlstudents to buildup a confidance in them to become a professional. The program offers the students all sort of help and training programmes to groom their professional career so that in turn these girl students can support their own family members by standing on their own feet. As the programme was related with girl students initially I was cautious to get involved but when I was fully convinced I started offering all sort of help as faculty member in my institute COEP. This a third year of this programe in our institute and students on this programme are showing excellent academic achievements as they are well taken careof through professional counciling as well as through a mentor program. Students in this programme are eager to take full advantage of the support to develope their professional career. This program is run by the professionals who take the inspration through their thought "they owe some thing to the society and specifically to their mothers who inspired them to do best in the profession". I sincerely appriciate and salute the team members of the TSP program.The buety of this programe is that every individual on this program is monitored and groomed on one to one basis through a well trained field staff. I specifically mention the efforts taken by Mrs. Anjali Hari who works as a Project Manager for this program. Through her constant efforts, professional skills, inspration and followup with the TSP benificiaries has certainly helped this program to grow and develope. S. R. Sathe

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

For the last few months I have been teaching a group of girls in the college of engineering Pune on Saturday evenings. It has given me an opportunity to contribute to society and most importantly equip these girls with a few skills that will help them differentiate.I am also mentoring one of the students in the group.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

teaching. When I saw the group of girls on the first day , I realised that many of them came from remote parts of the country. To help them get a perspective of the real world I have been conducting classes on IT in Indian industry.

Ways to make it better...

I could spend more time with the students than what my schedule permits me today.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

A former colleague and friend of mine had told Third Sector Partners about me in 2008. Sometime in the middle of last year they got in touch with me regarding a job placement with a NGO based at Shimla. However though I was interested in the job as it fitted my qualifications and experience I could not shift base from Delhi. This year around a month back Third Sector Partners contacted me again regarding a vacancy in a reputed NGO working on rural development. They have been extremely helpful to me and we are now in the final stages of this particular job application. I am keeping my fingers crossed and do hope that I get selected. If that happens all credit will go to Third Sector Partners for having recommended my name for this particular opening. I wish them all the best as their contribution will help many development professionals like me to get jobs in the NGO sector.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The staff of Third Sector partners are extremely helpful, polite and know their work well! They can really help professionals like me to get jobs according to their qualifications and experience. Their contribution in the development sector is commendable

Katalyst is doing a great job in mentoring young girls who will someday be working professionals. It not only helps the mentee but also gives mentors like me a sense of responsibility in their development. Our country needs many such Kalalysts.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing my mentee's enthusiasm to learn more and be more confident. her zeal to work hard and be self reliant is very inspiring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help many such intellengent Indian girls who, today are unable to pursue higher professional education.

I found the whole process of short listing , fixing interviews and arranging logistics, extremely well handled and there was a human touch about it. At every stage , there was consideration for my constraints and pre arranged schedules and effort made to overcome these hurdles. There was a human touch to the interaction. There were at times, too many phone calls, but looking back, my experience was warm and extremely cordial. In my case, I was not the candidate selected by the party, and I felt that this news was broken rather too abruptly ; however it is entirely possible that there was no better way to communicate this kind of awkward news.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

being considered for a placement in a leading NGO

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not much really

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The human touch and the warmth

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

senior level executives

Ways to make it better...

if the news that I had not been selected had been conveyed in just as human a manner as the other discussions

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Having a big enough database of senior level professsionals

One thing I'd also say is that...

third sector partners is a truly professional organization. I liked the long discussions that they had with us to understand the HR requirement. through out the assignment, TSP kept to the schedule that they had submitted to us. The shortlisted list of candidates was amazingly good and TSP had done a real good job in terms of being able to source the CVs from across the industry.
