Here’s a little coffee with her –
What inspired you to start NGO Tammana at such an early age?
The first spark was when we were taken to an Old Age Home in the last days of our school, where I found unconditional love & wanted to come back again to see them. Soon, the visits turned regular & there began a beautiful bonding that advanced with time. Wanting to do more for them & more in need around, I perceived that I wouldn’t be able to do this alone and needed a bunch of like minded enthusiasts. To build a platform for all was a small but a true ‘Tammana’ inside that only grew with time. The age then & now is when we have the capabilities at our peak & must channelize these energies in the right directions in the service of mankind, & hence God. Of-course, with some challenges settled in place & taking the path less traveled, there began ‘Tammana’ quite instantly where the chain just built up that you see today.
How do you find people for your organisation, who truly care about the organisation the way you do?
We’ve never invited any applications nor go out calling people to join our NGO. We let our work speak & inspire. So, the people who have zeal; come forward on their own to be a part of the team & our work. Hence, we’re glad to have only the quality people joining in who want to work with a ‘less me & a more we’ motive, for a common cause, with a common vision & that absolute care. Displaying our work at stalls, sharing on social media, word of mouth & the media prints help bring this all together.
What kind of work culture exists in your organisation?
If there is the one feature that I call out best from the organisation is the culture itself! From transparency with & within the team, the sincerity & responsibility it works with, the fun we have, the family-like bonding builds it up all. Here, the discipline is a must & a much accepted & an admired attribute. An unbiased & a decisive leadership & an ever ready & a high spirited team; together wonderfully does the magic. Courteous & unconditional to each other, we stand strong for each other all the time! We are automatically connected by a common vision cord that helps us feel no different from each other. This aura, this culture is amazing to be in. Not just who are a part, but those who witness it around, know it too, feel it too. It is a small different world all together!
