PUTHRI Ecosystem

Drawing strength from each other, the stakeholders of PUTHRI ecosystem work in tandem, at many levels, to address tertiary education for girl children, making them career intentional for life.

As fellow NGOs you can join hands with us in realising our dream of making 10,000 underprivileged girl children 'Career Intentional' every year. Your partnership will help us to spread wings in your city of operation, provide guidance on furthering our networking opportunities regionally and locally to develop more effective and innovative training programmes, build and enhance project management and operational skills for optimal functioning at your location. Also assist us in raising and ultimately reaching out to more PUTHRI beneficiaries.

As a Corporate house your association will help us connect with your star employees, who can lead by example, by being a true role model and career coach to guide and counsel PUTHRI scholars to choose better and brighter careers ahead in their lives.

In addition to offering space and infrastructure to conduct PUTHRI training programmes, well established and heritage schools in every town or city can help us identify high schools student-leaders from within their schools, as role models or mentors to positively influence the PUTHRI scholars on various subjects related to student life and beyond.

As student volunteers you have the privilege & opportunity to create better environments for the underprivileged. Blessed with the basic requirements of food, shelter, clothing & education, you will be able to appreciate life better, hence understand the importance of creating healthier communities to their brighten lives.

Not only that! Volunteering brings out new interests, hobbies, and opinions within you and will open up multiple avenues to get involved with new things to develop technical, social, and academic skills that you couldn’t have learned in a classroom environment. Volunteering allows you to experience different environments and situations.

Networking is an amazing benefit of volunteering, and as students you will learn the art of relationship building, hone your professional skills and have access to a breadth of knowledge from your co-volunteers. You will also imbibe a positive way of life, thinking & develop character traits that your potential employers would appreciate while hiring you.Volunteering for a cause like PUTHRI, will give students like you the opportunities to test out a desired career path. Concurrently, it gives you an edge on your resume. At a young and pretty inexperienced age, volunteering is an excellent gateway to the workforce.

Depending upon your interests and skill sets you can choose to be a part of one or more of the following seven teams:

MENTOR: Be a personal advocate for your mentee and inspire her spirit

As a mentor you will encourage, motivate, challenge and guide every PUTHRI scholar to think through different solutions for various problems in life. Based on her unique developmental needs, you will seek and create new opportunities to develop new skills and gain meaningful visibility for her and open her eyes and mind to different perspectives. Also, you will link and support her long term goals, values and emotions to a larger organizational agenda, as she becomes career oriented and career intentional to better her future and quality of life. Similar to being a trustworthy counsellor, as a Mentor, you will be able to make a real impact on the PUTHRI scholars through consistent and ongoing relationship building.

ROLE MODEL: Lead by example with your real time success story

As Role models you will lead by example and inspire PUTHRI scholars to achieve their potential in life. You can share your real time success stories with these girls as to how you achieved success despite the various challenges & hurdles in your life and give them the confidence to overcome every hurdle with perseverance and eventually succeed in life. Ensure students emulate the positive qualities, bringing about an overall change for the good.

CAREER COACH : Nurture high-achieving professionals

As a career coach your expert guidance can empower PUTHRI scholars to identify their strengths & passions, the means & ways to realise them and help them see their present challenges as advantages and help overcome them. When you help assess their professional situations with a greater degree of honesty, curiosity, empathy and compassion, you not only redefine their intelligent quotient, but also the emotional quotient, by reassuring & boosting their self confidence, making their job search less stressful, less anxious and less vulnerable in this competitive market. Not just that, your support will help these girls make informed decisions about their career development and trajectory, as well as offer various tools that they can use to enhance their qualifications, like writing letters, resumes etc to meet their ultimate goals.

PLUS: Social media and PR management

You will share and promote PUTHRI events and initiatives online & periodically through various online social media platforms, creating awareness across networks to increase visibility for the cause, eliciting feedback from like minded people, encouraging opinion & policy makers, influencers from the society to participate support key issues related to girl child education and career intentionality among schools girls and women empowerment in general.
