Dear Friends,

Today we are happy to share the indelible volunteering experience of  Dipti Wadhwani, one of our Tech Mahindra Associates. 

“I would suggest everybody to volunteer and experience the joy of making people happy”

Before I could realize I was done with four years of my college. Traveling, partying and socializing was all I did along with my studies. I always wanted to work for a social cause but had no idea of nearby NGOs as I had recently shifted to Mumbai. I joined Tech Mahindra and in the second week itself, along with my colleagues, I was taken out to do some volunteering. It gave me an amazing opportunity to do some actual work for a good cause, in fact I felt fortunate to volunteer for Tech Mahindra Foundation.

As part of the volunteering program, we had to visit slums and inform people about the SMART program that provides skilling opportunities to youth enabling them enter a career of their choice. We did some interactive fun activities like street play, taking out rallies to spread awareness about the SMART program. We told people about the benefits of joining the program and how they can reach new heights. It gave us immense pleasure and inner peace when they showed interest.

While interacting with young boys and girls I learned that lack of interest and support hinders their educational and vocational capacities. We pledged to help people know about the program and told them that the Foundation offers the course FREE. Unexpectedly, we also met a young girl who got a job after completing the course from SMART. She happily came forward and shared her positive experience with the people of her community. The interaction made us love the community and young people even more. In a nutshell, I would like to say that Volunteering at Tech Mahindra Foundation taught us some beautiful life lessons

“To see someone smile and to know that you contribute something for that smile gives ultimate joy.”

Thank you Tech Mahindra Foundation Team and TLS Team for giving us this priceless opportunity.

Warm Regards,
Tech Mahindra Foundation
