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.
Katatlyst is one of the greatest organisation in the country.It has been doing innumerable quality programs for the sake of students educational welfare.It 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.I have been part of this programme since 1 year and I can find myself as a confident girl and can do my studies without taking any other echonomical burdons. THANKS TO KATALYST.
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 (initiative of Third Sector Partners) follows a really strong result-oriented approach which is what sets them apart. They are constantly assessing their impact and looking for ways to improve their effectiveness. This philosophy goes into every little activity which is what makes the difference. They are very focussed on their effort and really strive to make a difference to the long term lives of the people they work with.
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...
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.
The motive and the rigour with which they conduct the search both for mentees and mentors is commendable. I only have pwords of praise for them
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!!!
