Saathi: mentor for life
In pursuance with the goal of reaching out to every student, this organisation runs this initiative wherein a mentor is assigned to a student based on their common interests and academic backgrounds. Please click here to see the list of mentors associated with Project Saathi.
The organisation collaborates with its counterparts working on similar areas to achieve a common set of goals. Online mentorship sessions, awareness drives and fundraising initiatives are undertaken with the aid of social media platforms to reach out to more and more beneficiaries.
Project Saathi has two ongoing research initiatives and three more Capacity Building Workshops planned for FY 2020-21. Since its operation started in January 2020, the organisation has been able to reach out to hundred and fifty students through its initiatives with an expanding volunteer force of over twenty five people.
The organisation strives to reach out to over 1000 students across socio-economic boundaries and provide the right mentorship for them to grow.
This organisation has sensitised the youth from across institutions in Guwahati and Northeast to contribute in whichever way possible for reforming the system which continues to shape their lives. With its motto of providing mentorship, it has created a movement in the region by making various individuals realise about their calibre and potential through which they could change lives at different levels.
Through our Capacity Building Workshops, SAATHI Mentorship Programme and Online Sessions, we keep endeavouring to reach out to more and more lives.

I think one of the greatest hopes I have (in this sector) is Project Saathi because I find that you are students who have come together and the young generation is taken this up and dared to believe that we need a change.
