Emerging with a novel concept, Nagpur’s humanitarian and visionary senior citizen Dr Mukund Paithankar has come up with a service platform called NGO Katta. It is a virtual platform for all the NGOs and volunteers who are willing to offer voluntary services to NGOs and corporates who are looking for NGOs providing exceptional services or services in line with their corporate philosophy.
With an objective to spread philanthropism amongst Nagpurkars, NGO Katta proves to be a great help for NGOs, donors and volunteers.
Often we see people in our society who are willing to offer their services voluntarily but are unable to track an NGO to help with the activity; and vice versa it becomes difficult for an NGO as well to track down a volunteer. NGO Katta seals this gap by providing a perfect solution to this - by visiting the site, the volunteers get to choose their choice of NGO and the NGO on the other hand can select their own sets of volunteers.
Anyone who is willing to be the part of this venture, like NGOs, donors, volunteers and corporates can register at the website www.ngokatta.org. There are no registration fees for any entities to register on the website. All registrations are free.
After registration they can seek volunteers, pitch for financial, legal, human resource help from general public and corporates.
NGO Katta is a start-up and brain child of Dr Mukund Paithankar and Dr Madhuri Paithankar. Dr. Mukund Paithankar is a BE (Mechanical), MTech (Production Engg) from RTM Nagpur University, MS (Software Systems) from BITS, Pilani and PhD from RTM Nagpur University. He has 37 years of experience, of which 15 years is in IT, 7 years in industry and 15 years in teaching.
Co-founder Dr Madhuri Paithankar is an MD (Medicine) and retired from Govt. Medical College as Professor of Medicine after 32 years of distinguished service. She has had a meritorious career and received numerous awards and has been involved in social services for years. She is a daughter of Adv. S. W. Dhabe, twice Member of Parliament and very well known labour leader of yesteryears with a firm social commitment.
This is perhaps the first start-up which has been put forward by a senior citizen of Nagpur.
