I joined SVP about a year ago and this one year has been truly transformational for me. SVP helped me a lot in understanding the ecosystem and challenges in the sector. I met some very accomplished and talented people – both within SVP and in NGOs we work with. Small help I could provide to the NGOs we support has been very fulfilling. Last but not the least, SVP played a pivotal role in my decision to make a full time transition to the social sector.
