ABOUT US

Sarthak is a unique initiative of Aanandam Society for Sustainable Development (www.aanandam.org). The objective of Sarthak is to build the mentoring relationship among ‘‘The Parth and The Saarthi’ enabling exchange of knowledge and guidance from a wiser adult to a vulnerable student. The essence of this initiative lies in the fact that it caters to the students from highly exposed sections of the society in the villages, distant away from the lime light of the cities. This is the first of it’s kind remotely operated mentorship program in the world.

 

Sarthak, initially conceptualized in 2013 and run for 4 years in local modes, was formally started in December 2017 when 8 students from a small town in Bihar, Jamalpur, were selected for the first cohort of Sarthak. The 8 students selected are from highly exposed section of the society but have the potential to be the super stars of tomorrow. A group of 7 mentors, from varied backgrounds and experience, were selected to mentor these 8 students.

Journey

John C Maxwell once quoted “One of the greatest values of mentors is the ability to see ahead what others cannot see and to help them navigate a course to their destination”. Mentoring can also give you a great overall sense of personal satisfaction, knowing that you are helping someone else learn and grow on a professional and personal level.

 

Started in Nov, 2017 Sarthak has successfully grown to 3 states, 4 cohorts mentoring 51 children with a team of 23 mentors.

 

Our mentors are young professionals from across the country and spend 1-2 hrs a week mentoring children from disadvantaged backgrounds primarily focusing on remote locations. We believe in the ideology where we as a society, will grow if each individual can share knowledge and wisdom gained through experience and education to the younger generation, a world where each individual is committed to the development of the other. We are on a journey to grow the chain of mentoring sustainable across the country creating and shaping the future leaders of India with the motto of Sarthak – “Each one, reach one”
