Being a mentor gives me immense satisfaction because I can help and guide Puthri scholars in developing career intentionality. An educated girl can empower an entire generation, and an informed Puthri scholar will opt for the right career path and inspire the next generation. I take pride in being a part of the team that works hard to interact, identify, and hone the skills, of deserving Puthri scholars for a bright future.

Mentoring online through webinar sessions has encouraged me to be creative in my presentation. Searching for stories that Puthri’s can identify or connect with, and presenting them so that every Puthri participates during the mentoring session, has been a rewarding experience. I thank all the Puthri volunteers for helping me through the sessions and making my learning experience a satisfying journey.

As a volunteer, I have personally learned a great deal along with Puthri scholars. I derive immense satisfaction in presenting the animation and graphical content to the online sessions that attract Puthri participation. Teaching them life skills through interesting graphical content is indeed a learning experience for me too. I congratulate team Puthri for kindling this transformation.

It is my pleasure to be writing about my experience with team Puthri during the “covidemic” academic year 20-21. During the pandemic times, Team Puthri has set a benchmark in spearheading towards its goal. Project Puthri has crossed important milestones. Proud to be part of the team united with the single aim of educating and empowering girl children.

The jury role in 100th virtual session celebration made clear to me the longing ness of our Puthris towards such an exposure. Being a part of both physical and virtual PCCA sessions, I feel, it definitely helps as an eye opener in their future career choices. The support, guidance and the teamwork of Project Puthri is highly admirable. Happy to be a part of it.
