Redesigning Destinies - A rewarding experience to make a profound impact on every PUTHRI scholar.

Project PUTHRI turns the spotlight on India’s daughters studying in Government Schools between the age group of 12-18 years. It seeks to redesign the destinies of these girls from the lower economic backgrounds right from their childhood into their adulthood as young working women, by providing them education and the required support system in the form of enablers like mentors, role models and career coaches throughout their development.

Mentors

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. 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 Models

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

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.

Train the Trainers

Alongside Mentors, Role Models & Career Coaches, Trainers also play a crucial role in ensuring the success of the program. The mentors undergo a comprehensive training program that gives them the tools to understand and implement the ‘Intentionality’ framework effectively. On completion, each mentor is deputed at schools based on geographical proximity.
