With the email of Rajashree Khalap I decided t go to the MHU camp of Satpuda foundation. After the initial arrangements with Vishal Bansod I finally landed up directly at Moharli.
This was my first experience for such a medical camp. We got together at Satpuda office, Moharli in the morning. Got to know other volunteers and doctors along with Guddu, the co-ordinator at the office. After the doctors,Guddu made the initial check of the props/medicines required(for which I was just an observer) we went to Dewala, a village near by. We reached the usual place where they set up the mobile clinic. Doctors, Volunteers started to arrange the clinic with equipments, medicines, patients' records, etc. More..
Dear Kishor Sir,
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your guidance and supervision this summer(2009) during my internship experience with Satpuda foundation. Your leadership throughout the summer assisted me in further development of my leadership and communications skills as well as my ability to implement individual projects and function as a leading contributor on various team projects within the foundation.
The experience was more than I could have expected and allowed me the freedom to explore different ideas. I actually felt like a major contributor in different activities and I was able to work independently on issues close to my heart. Working for Satpuda foundation helped me use the knowledge I’ve acquired over last year as a volunteer as well as the skills I’ve developed during my previous experiences with other NGOs.
I also want to thank the entire staff especially Gajanan Shanware, Neharu Yeole and Ratanji in Harisal as well as Project officer of Akot Eco Restoration project Mr. Amol Pande for taking the time to share their expertise and knowledge of the field. I am also thankful to Mr. Manish Sawankar and Mr. Vishal Bansod for taking pains in scheduling and organizing my whole intern. It was through these times that I felt I was able to learn and grow the most in developing my skills over the course of the summer. The staff was most responsive to my requests and always made me feel like a full-time member of the group.
Please let me know if there is any other way I could be assisting your foundation I would definitely like to volunteer again with Satpuda Foundation in future. Thank you again for my making my intern a never to forget experience.

This event has been memorable for me! I really appreciate the concern shown by Maya’s parents-Gauri and Bruce Sreenivasan. Satpuda Foundation would request its young readers of Maya’s age to follow, implement and expand the “action programme” given by Maya’s team. I would like to see such more “Teams for Tigers” acting across the world! It’s a time of action now…. Read More..
