Zohar Sharon, Chief Knowledge Officer, Tel Aviv Municipality, was impressed by the collective strength and determination of Tanishka members to bring a change in society. Sharon interacted with several Tanishka members from Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad, Jejuri, Ranjangaon and Satara at Sakal International Learning Centre (SILC) to learn about the various initiatives undertaken by them.
The Tanishka Foundation stands committed to assuring women of the respect and dignity they deserve, and ensuring that they are at the core of Nation Transformation.
The Tanishka team shared their experience and projects undertaken to ensure better living conditions for the society. Members have taken up initiatives such as women empowerment, medical camps, environmental initiatives like banning plastic, empowering the underprivileged sections of the society, various workshops and addressing various civic problems of their own localities.
Dr Shilpa Ganphule, a professor at Savitribai Phule Pune University, said, “There were a few visually-impaired students in my class. When I asked how they study, they said that someone reads out to them. This gave me an idea of recording the syllabus and distributing audio disks to them. These 16 GB disks are proving useful to those students as well as others.”
A member of Tanishka and Sarpanch of Ranjangaon, Swati Patil, spoke about how the Tanishka Foundation has empowered women, making them more self-confident and self-reliant.
