An Unforgettable Experience

Words can’t describe how much I’ve not only learned but how much I’ve enjoyed myself doing something I love while contributing to something much bigger than myself by interning at Tribes for Good. Thank you to Mandeep and Kashyap for giving me the opportunity to enact positive social change while learning so much about a community I care so much about. This definitely won’t be the last time I will work at TFG and I am definitely looking forward to hopefully working and maybe having a bigger role at TFG for a longer duration, for sure! As a TribesforGOOD intern, I visited various suburbs of Mumbai to collect stories of change in Dharavi (showcasing enterprise and business), Malwani (a slum in Malad) and Bandra and worked on various themes related to Business/Tourism, Women & Livelihood, Adolescents and Street kids for Aftertaste, Bethelocal, The Gender Lab, Angel Xpress. To express these stores, I produced high-impact visual narratives that fuel awareness and inspire action, in which my focus was to capture the essence of the cause in a manner that represents the mission or vision of the organization through visual media - to create a consistent visual identity in the form of videos that will be used to garner attention and awareness.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Make the most of your experience, regardless of whether you are a local or foreigner. As an Indian myself, I consider myself pretty familiar with the social spectrum, yet I still learned so much more by working at TFG. Mandeep and Kashyap are extremely helpful when it comes to guiding you with your work and will make sure every aspect of your experience is comfortable and memorable.

The Social Impact Journey by TribesforGOOD is based on a practical/learn by doing approach. It has Hack-a-thons where we worked on a project of our choice throughout the journey and helped come up with solutions and strategies for various social organizations we met. The participants(us) had a lot to discuss among ourselves how western countries often neglect the basic of things and use resources unwisely, on the other hand social enterprises here are using the last of their resources optimally and taking calculated risks . Every person we met had a story to tell,a story of how India is developing, how people survive in this city .
One thing that charmed me about this city was to learn that 'Struggle is not exclusive,rather inevitable' is this country and yet people are happily working for the betterment of their community and a society as a whole.

A sense of Fulfilment

I have always been keen on giving back to the local community whenever I travel. The TribesforGOOD program revolves around community and cultural immersions through Hackathons. Using my skills in strategy building ,we helped a local social enterprise organise a conference highlighting the cause supported by the enterprise. Initially, the journey might come as a cultural shock and getting acclimatized takes a few hours to a day but its an experince nonetheless. There is a lot to be discovered in the noise of the city and might seem that the culture has lost its touch but the history revives the heritage of it.
