“After working in the corporate sector for 4 years as a strategy consultant, I decided to switch gears and apply my business background in the development sector. Before coming to India I was specifically interested in exploring the social enterprise space, and SAATH has given me the runaway to explore and implement innovative business models to help create more sustainable organization. The staff at SAATH has been unbelievably supportive and helpful throughout the duration on my fellowship. The beauty of SAATH is in its ability to create a knowledge sharing platform between slum residents and the middle-class Ahmedabad community. Through my experience at SAATH I have not only grown professionally, I have also had an opportunity to build lasting relationships with people I probably would not have gotten to know to such a depth without SAATH’s platform. SAATH’s desire to constantly innovate, as well as its deep relationship with the community it serves makes it the ideal organization in which to make a lasting impact and simultaneously indulge in a grassroots level experience.”
