Our employee volunteering services are designed to meet the needs of leading Companies who recognize the business and social value of community involvement. We recognize that each Company has different needs. Whether the Company seeks to increase employee volunteerism, fulfill community outreach goals, measure program participation or publicly align Company brand with strategic community involvement initiatives, SAHASH will help in each of these steps.People volunteer for a variety of reasons. Some are motivated by philanthropic values; some seek social justice, while others see service as a way to enable the lesser privileged in a society.
Many of us volunteer because we want to give something back to a society that has given us so much. Most times, we strongly believe in or care about certain issues or causes. Whatever the reason, volunteering transforms you and the world around you.
Volunteers form a powerful group that development sector organizations leverage to implement projects and create community participation. 'Volunteerism' in today's context is not confined to students, housewives, youth, elderly or any other such groups. 'Volunteerism' also applies to professionals with management/engineering/doctorate backgrounds working in corporate houses contributing their knowledge and experience to Social Service Programs.
Volunteering has its share of delightful perks - chance to travel, meet new people, and acquire life & career enhancing experiences and skills.
Volunteering does not require a special degree or prior experience. It simply requires a willingness to help. Your interest, skills, enthusiasm, willingness, and commitment are wonderful assets to our organization.
