This week a group of around 10 social entrepreneurs from different parts of the world visited us at SAATH Savings and Credit Cooperative Society Ltd. and URC (Urban resource Centre) at Vasna. The visitors are all a part of ‘Journeys for Change’ (http://www.journeysforchange.org ) an organization that organizes journeys for leaders and companies in inspiring journeys.
They had an enlightening interactive session with SAATH employees at SAATH Cooperative centre and later they visited the URC centre at Vasna. They were given an orientation about what SAATH is all about, its’ brief history and also about the various programmes run by SAATH.
Towards the end of the program they had an interactive session with Mr. Rajendra Joshi, founder and Managing Trustee of SAATH, where he shared with them his personal experience about the adventurous journey of SAATH and also talked about spirituality in work. They left our organisation with a great sense of gratification and contentment in their hearts!
Also on 16th of November, a group of 12 students along with 2 teachers from the Mahindra United World School, Pune (http://www.uwcmahindracollege.org ) visited us at Yuva Mast Centre (Youth Employability Programme), Usmanpura and SAATh Cooperative, Vasna.
The main aim of the students was to get an exposure to various issues prevalent in the urban sector and deepen their understanding of environment and urban sustainable development issues in India. We helped them achieve this by sharing with them our experiences at SAATH.
They also interacted with the children at Yuva Mast. The children at Yuva Mast gladly pieced up their experience with the students and teachers. The students were glad to get such an enthusiastic response and had a life time experience at SAATH.
We are very thankful to ‘Journeys for Change’ and ‘Mahindra United World School ‘for visiting us and interacting with us.
