Bridging the gap
Nonprofit organisation utilize public money that comes to them in the form of grants and donations from various private individuals, institutions, companies as well as the government to work towards making a positive change in society. The exact definition and metrics of this positive change depends on the problem the nonprofit is trying to solve. For example, an NGO working in the area of will measure this positive change in the form of the increased access of health services to public or increased awareness among people for prevention of a disease. Similarly, an education-focussed NGO like Teach for India will measure this change as the positive difference its work brought in the learning outcomes of students. Have they become better at language and mathematics? Are greater number of students now enrolling in school? Has the number of dropouts reduced? - These are some of the questions you will try to answer as you measure the impact of this NGO's work.

Meet Our Certified Menterns
It was amazing! I learnt so many things like creating engagement on social media platforms. The 1:1 with mentors were super helpful. I learnt how to create Instagram ads, identify goals & do competitor analysis- so many things.
There was a lot of interactive sessions with Mentors. The Menternship I completed gave me a new perspective to how work has to be done. I truly enjoyed working with real figures & actual industry case studies. 
My experience was great as I got a chance to explore subjects like Analytics which are difficult to look for. The Menternship allowed to get subject knowledge and see what goes behind the making and delivering of a product.
My experience was very useful as I learnt so much about Fleet Management & Digital Marketing connected to the real-world scenario. I learnt how to actually work with social media channels like IG & Facebook.
