    Namaste! Greetings from India. I am Vaibhav Parakh and I co-founded an NGO based out of New Delhi—Samadhan Abhiyan—which works primarily in the space of child sexual abuse. I am here to explore this space and meet people who are passionate about making a change in the society; and through such communities, I would like to know more about best practices across domains/sector.

    Looking forward to an exciting journey!

  • Hey everyone !!
    My name is Nilanjan and I am from the Financial Capital of India, the Mayanagri, Mumbai. I work with a chemicals manufacturing firm in their corporate strategy department. My roles and responsibilities in my current job revolve around Data Analytics, Project Management and Business Feasibility studies (Organic / Non organic ventures). I have joined this community to interact with the people who work with various NGO's or are a part of one, to know more about their funding strategies, growth plans, etc and be associated with them to utilize the skills that i have gained (by may be being an external consultant) . About my experience in this sector, I have worked with an NGO in the past whose area of interest was the education of the underprivileged children as a project co-ordinator for their Science project.

    Awesome! Great to have you here Nilanjan :)

    Sounds like you have a fascinating background between both the for-profit sector (working in the corporate strategy department at a chemicals manufacturing firm) and the non-profit sector. When you mention joining this community to learn more about "funding strategies, growth plans, etc", does this mean you're thinking of starting your own NGO?

    I am thinking more from a Social Entrepreneurship perspective - being an end to end consultant for the NGO's or the CSR function of the firms.

    Welcome Vijaykumar!

    What sort of work were you doing while working in Africa for the last 10 years? What work are you doing now?

    If you're interested in identifying opportunities with orphanages, I would encourage you to join the Nigeria or Uganda Communities and posting a topic seeing if anyone there has any suggestion of opportunities :)

    Wonderful, welcome Kuldeep! Super fascinating that you are approaching the topic of CBOs and FBOs from an academic perspective. Are you interested in these sorts of organizations just from an theoretical perspective or are you also looking to work with them?
