Partnering for Change: Indicorps and Outbound Panchgani Co-host the Second Annual Partner Organization Workshop


For a second consecutive year, Indicorps and Outbound Panchgani co-hosted a partner organization workshop for field partners for the upcoming fellowship year.  With representatives from 14 partner organizations and 8 Indicorps staff present, the workshop provided an opportunity to strengthen our bonds and our collective commitment to creating an environment for change in August 2010.

Raju Thakor, from Village Sarsavadi, who is potentially hosting two fellows in 2010 said: “I have known Indicorps for a long time.  I knew Indicorps has made a strong contribution to making volunteering in India popular.  I had no idea there was this much depth to the process.  I am honored to host Indicorps Fellows and will do my best to achieve our collective aim and spirit of service.”

As Ghatit Leharu, from KHAMIR (Kutch Heritage, Arts and Craft, Music and Integrated Resources) said, “The workshop gave us a broad perspective of the Fellowship and why it is important for us and for the Fellows. It helped me understand the values and methodology adopted by Indicorps. It also helped me understand how Indicorps is different from other organizations.” Khamir, which means “pride” in Kutchi, is an artisan-focused Craft Resource Centre (CRC) designed to promote and develop local craftsmen’s knowledge and skills.

The August 2010 partner organizations span from Uttarakhand to Karnataka and Orissa to Kutch. Nabin Chandra Gorada, from Sahara, said, “Through the workshop, I learnt a new way to approach my work. My attitude and thinking has undergone a drastic change and I am thinking about team work and team spirit again.” Sahara is an organization established in 1991 to promote village self-sufficiency and holistic community development including economic, public health, and education activities in Orissa.
