Mission: TSP’s mission is” Every good deed deserves a good leader”, every individual we help recruit should be able to make a measurable difference for the well being of society. Third Sector Partners is a boutique high-end executive search firm serving social and corporate sector clients desirous of recruiting exceptional talent at senior management and Board levels, who will make a measurable impact to the world of have-nots and bottom of the pyramid markets. Third Sector Partner’s mission, “Every Good Deed Deserves Every Good Leader” fills the void which has plagued the sector for many years: leadership quality of top management in positions of change and influence.  The profits it creates are hived back into a 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 at life through education, personality development and life skills. Katalyst hopes to staff the world of future management with women leaders of substance. And so that none of this becomes the privilege of a few and the domain of talent and leadership search becomes inclusive, self-sustaining and almost a movement, Third Sector Partrners has recently launched barefootjobs.org, an online job portal exclusively dedicated to the not-for-profit, development, corporate social responsibility and sustainability sectors.

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.

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.

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

Very friendly, sincere and committed to their cause

Katalyst has a clear vision of supporting girl students who really want to achieve great in their life. The concept of giving every student a mentor is not only unique, but also shows the involvement of Katalyst Organization, in helping the students to develop better lifeskills. Monetary benefit the student gets is the least of the importance when compared to other benefits given by Katalyst, that helps in development development of their carrier and life, activities such as placement training, mentoring, counselling, academic support and the list goes on...

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

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

Katalyst has given me an opportunity to do my bit for the people at the bottom of the pyramid. By becoming a Mentor and guiding individuals not only on the educational front but on the awareness front has shown me that there are a lot of information that we assume that all should have -but its not true. There are still a huge community of people who by virtue of their education are rising up but only in the education/good grades side, but what about the vast area of smartness? Common sense? These do not come by just going to a good college. These come by being aware. And that is what I am doing along with Katalyst. We're making individuals with not only good grades but also with a smarter mind. We're making individuals who'd use their heads to understand what is right and wrong. We're making individuals who'd be smart and behave responsibly. Thanks to Katalyst -we're making it a possibilty. We're making a difference to the society.

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

They make you take the path what you feel is correct. The first level of interaction ensures that we're the right person for the job -mentoring. Once that is done we're upto ourselves as to what is our plan to take the mentee on the right direction.

I have been associated with Katalyst for more than 8 months now as a trainer for their placement training course. What's unique about Katalyst is that it brings a different perspective when it comes to uplifting the girl child. Their passion to support the most needy of all with the best of everything really stands out amongst them. They always extend a helping hand for those who seemed to have lost hope and are in desperate need of aid and support. My association with Katalyst has been enriched with moments of joy and satisfaction. May this organization scale further heights and achieve more success than ever before!!!

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

Zeal and passion to give the best to all its students.
