Volunteers

 

Rashmi Sacher, an avid reader, news writer and documentary researcher, has worked in an editorial capacity for almost a decade in organisations such as Encyclopaedia Britannica, Cambridge University Press and Google India. A university topper in Economics, she has contributed towards the Trust's HERnetwork Project. She got associated with the Trust in 2018 for compiling the annual report for the Trust’s CSR program, HERnetwork. Drawn by the noble initiatives towards upliftment of vulnerable women in remote areas, she has been with the Trust ever since.

 

 Ankita Sehgal, currently studying Masters in International Peace Studies at Soka University Japan, has simultaneously worked as a long term volunteer at Village Ways charitable Trust from Japan. A fashion designer by profession, she was always drawn towards working for development at society or any social work. The immense support from Mrs. Ratnamala Kapur to grow at work and her passion to always work for community, kept her encouraged to volunteer and helped her contribute to the Trust's work. Right from maintaining excel spreadsheets to coordinating with the teams back in the remote villages, accounting, maintaining records, organizing health camps, she has been an asset to the Trust. 

The Village Ways Charitable Trust has welcomed volunteers coming from different places around the world to support the Trust work and activities. Please drop us a mail at charitable.trust@villageways.com if you are interested in volunteering.


Shaila, a third year student of University of Toronto, Mississauga shares her volunteering experience with VWCT :

" Working at Village Ways was a truly unique experience. On my first day, I was asked to sort through all of the files that they had collected since they started. As each day passed I was learning new things. I learnt how the villagers made baskets out of bamboo. Further, I understood the process that went into making an order a reality. Everyone worked together as a team in order to overcome the various problems.

 As the days went by I got a chance to interact with the people I was working with and work was no longer work but fun! I am truly honoured that I got a chance to be a part of this great organization."

We are pleased to have volunteers like Shaila with us, and are hopeful that she volunteers again whenever she visits India.
