Samvada is a collective of 40 individuals who complement each other through our diverse interests, temperaments, backgrounds, personalities, styles, qualifications and skills. What binds us together is our common dream, our united vision for young people, our shared philosophy and a collective ownership of Samvada as an organization.
Our programme team comprises youthful youth mentors with expertise in youth sensitisation, alternative livelihood trainers at Baduku Community College and youth work promoters who nurture and incubate Yuva Samvada Kendras.
The programme teams are supported by:
- A Resource & Consulting Unit that develops our curriculum and knowledge and guides our collaborations/networks
- An Administrative and Organization Support Unit that takes care of accounts, finance, human resources, administration and the many logistical challenges our work creates
- An Executive Director who directs and leads the team
Samvada has set out on an adventurous journey that is idealistic and pragmatic, academically rigorous and creative, serious and fun, tactical and compassionate, and emotional as much as political. So it goes without saying that the team must be also all of these things… and we are!
