ITLH Students Collaborate with ConnectFor for Skill-Based Social Impact
Information Technology Learning Hub (ITLH) is delighted to announce a first-of-its-kind partnership between its students and ConnectFor, which is a unique platform aimed at connecting NGOs with volunteers thereby creating social impact, saving the NGO resources, and giving a chance for volunteers to give back and transform themselves. ConnectFor is co-founded by Shloka Ambani and Maniti Shah, and has helped hundreds of nonprofits across the country with their social impact needs.
ITLH students have undertaken the task of enhancing the digital needs of various NGOs, starting with a focus on making their websites more user-centric. Through website redesign and redevelopment, our students are dedicated to creating a more user-friendly and easily navigable platform for NGOs thereby improving the experience of beneficiaries, potential donors, and other key stakeholders.
ConnectFor, known for providing matchmaking solutions to maximize social value through volunteering and corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a brainchild of Shloka Ambani and Maniti Shah whose leadership is making a profound impact on the nation’s future by enabling more citizens to give back to social and civic causes. They have engaged more than 50,000 volunteers till date that has resulted in an impact worth more than Rs 10 crore for the NGO sector.
Alex George, Co-founder of ITLH, expressed his thoughts on this collaboration, said, “At ITLH, we firmly believe in the power of practical learning, ensuring that our students gain exposure by solving real-life industry as well as societal problems. We are extremely proud of the fact that our students are not only resolving industry-relevant challenges but also creating real-time impact through their involvement in these social initiatives. We extend our gratitude to the ConnectFor team for this opportunity and we look forward to many more such partnerships in the future.”
ITLH takes immense pride in the participation of its students in this noble initiative. As an institution, we are committed to high quality education experience for our students while creating a positive impact on society. This will be a win-win for all – the NGOs, students,the ConnectFor team, the society, and us – and we are excited about the outcomes from this partnership for all.
