At Our Chapter

Pune’s Corporate Partnership program, set up in early 2020, is aimed at companies who wish to provide the SVP experience to their senior executives. The company’s nominees to SVP partake of the diverse learning and growth opportunities that SVP Pune curates. Additionally, company employees are provided with hands-on volunteering opportunities at NGOs, matched to their skills and competencies, so that the work they undertake can be a significant value-add for the partner NGO.

This initiative helps corporates inculcate the values of giving and empathy among their teams; as well as open their minds and eyes to the lives of the less fortunate. Employees develop a deep sense of bonding with a “caring company”, becoming significant contributors to triple bottom line growth.

Latest Happenings

With an endeavor to reduce plastic waste, Know How Foundation on 25th May inaugurated a project site in rural Pune district at Bhor village. This upcoming new workshop supported by SVP Pune will create livelihood opportunities for the tribal Women and Youth, as they manually weave fabric from Waste Plastic using a traditional charkha (Spindle) and handloom. 

Team SVP India wishes Parul Vaidya many milestones and growth opportunities as she transitions into her new role as the CEO of SVP India’s Pune Chapter. 

All the hard work and effort of team Prayatna paid off as two of their trainees started interning at Forbes Marshall. And the launch of another #CafeDil in the TATA AUTOCOMP SYSTEMS LTD – SCM Hinjewadi campus in Pune is commendable. Congratulations team Prayatna, keep shining!

With a wide range of hand-made products carefully packed with love, Prayatna aims to promote awareness and sensitization toward employment across sectors for its people. We experienced some of their students that served and sold products to our partners with great enthusiasm. SVP India supports and celebrates Prayatna’s accomplishments and sends them best wishes for the future.

Launching our first CSR program with our investee NGO Prayatna, which works with disabled kids and adults. We thank Tata Autocomp for joining in as a CSR partner for the program. The program aims at creating independent adults who can take on suitable jobs in the hospitality industry and most importantly earn respect and their due as individuals. We at SVP Pune are so thrilled that our small step is now looking like a dream come true!!

On 15th September, SVP Pune Partner NGO Maya CARE Foundation became the first team of persons with disabilities to present to the All India Management Association (AIMA) in 47 years of competition! A proud moment for Lead Partner Ruby Jhunjhunwala and all of SVP.

My association with SVP has been a great learning in many ways. While I was already somewhat familiar with basic working of NGOs, I feel I have gained from listening to many different perspectives within SVP, in finding solutions and working towards a common goal. I have thoroughly enjoyed the learning series & listening to the various investees.

“Every interaction at SVP has been a learning experience. Sometimes, it’s the NGO leaders working at the grassroots who have inspired me. Sometimes, it is the approach of some partners to the task at hand that inspires me. Sometimes, it is the way common ground is identified during a logjam that inspires me. So much learning….”
