To The New Launches ‘Saarthi’ For Underprivileged Students
TO THE NEW, a digital technology company, has recently launched ‘Saarthi’, a mentorship programme for underprivileged students, under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative ‘Pahal’.
Partnering with Association for India’s Development (AID), Noida, the company’s employees have volunteered to mentor and guide the students using their knowledge and experience. To date, over 50 students from the school have been paired with more than 25 volunteers from TO THE NEW.
The volunteers connect with their assigned students every week where they help them with their studies, career choices, personal problems, and talent grooming. These sessions focus on empowering and supporting every child with a positive role model. Children are paired with a suitable mentor based on their personality traits and interests.
“TO THE NEW is committed to assisting students with essential education to help them build and advance in their preferred careers. With Saarthi, we will provide emotional, financial and professional support to these students through our mentorship programme,” said Satya Sharma, Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) and Co-Founder, TO THE NEW.
“We’re proud and humbled to embark on this journey with the children and hope to see them realize their true potential and do great things in the future,” he added.
Students from AID, Noida and volunteers from TO THE NEW recently had their first meet-up, where they planned for their mentorship sessions. Later, the students also showcased their unique talents like dancing, singing, arts and crafts among others.
Santoshi was one of the students who participated in the programme. While talking about her experience, she said, “I enjoyed interacting with my mentor. She helped me learn new things and encouraged me to develop my singing skills.” Another student mentioned how this programme helped her decide which study path would better suit her ambitions of becoming a Data Scientist.
