As you can see from my review last year, I have a long and engaging relationship with VAANI. In the last one year, I feel that they have made even greater strides than before. They have achieved that which separates a good organisaton from a really great one. They have looked deep and hard at where they are, what funds and resources are available to them and how best these can be maximised to get where they aspire to. They have not flinched at taking the hard decisions they needed to with regard tro projects and programs. They have bolstered up the team with bright young minds, brimming over with enthusiasm and ideas. They have shifted location to a larger, more spacious premises which will allows for them to do many more things at the office. They have effected a change in leadership at the top - a moving up of Founder/Director to the Board of Trustees and the Associate Director up to Director. This has been smooth and effortless as they have been planning for it for over a year now. All this in a year, and yet the organisation has just taken it in their step, without missing a beat - in the superbly disciplined and trained manner that is so VAANI. The most important thing, the work with deaf children and their families is at the top of their priorities and this can be seen as strongly as ever in the last year.

My association with Vaani goes back to the organisation's inception. I am privileged to conduct their annual personnel development workshop, which is held at the time of their Annual Review and Planning Session. It is always the most rewarding three days of my year. The team is bright, responsive and articulate. They know how to take a good hard look within themselves and are willing to openly discuss issues and dynamics that could be preventing them from being even better than they already are. They are mature and constructive about feedback. They are not threatened by each other, and have the utmost respect for what each one brings to the table. Above all, they are bound together by the unwavering belief in the work that they do, and the need for it to be even better, stronger and more meaningful every year. The team consists of people from varied walks, with differing levels of education and training, and yet, the cohesion and single focus on purpose is in plain sight. I have not seen many in the corporate sector who have such a proactive and systematic approach to their work, and who invest so much in ensuring that their people are giving of their best, happily. So for an NGO, Vaani is truly unique.
