SARIKA DESAI

For the past two decades, I have dedicated myself to the social sector, focusing on vital areas such as education, health, and community development. Throughout my journey, I have closely witnessed the pressing needs of marginalized and deprived groups. It has become abundantly clear that quality training and the empowerment of women and youth are paramount to catalyzing positive change in these communities. Recognizing this urgent requirement, I have channeled my efforts through the STEP Foundation.

Our foundation is committed to providing individuals from underserved backgrounds with transformative opportunities. Through targeted programs and initiatives, we strive to equip them with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to not only uplift themselves but also to contribute meaningfully to the betterment of their communities. By focusing on empowering women and youth, we envision a brighter future where these individuals can break the cycle of poverty and marginalization, ultimately contributing to the overall progress of society.

STEP foundation. Our purpose is to provide unwavering support to individuals within our community who are seeking sustainable growth in their live. 

Life’s journey can often be challenging, and for those who come from disadvantaged family backgrounds, these challenges can appear even more dauting. Recognizing this, the STEP Foundation stands as a beacon of hope, guidance, and motivation. We believe that every individual has the potential to rise above their circumstances, given the right support and opportunities. 

In each phase of life, from childhood to adulthood, we all require a support system that empowers us to overcome obstacles and realize our dream. The STEP Foundation is committed to being that support system for those who need it most. We understand that sometimes, all it takes is a guiding hand to lead us towards a better path, a compassionate ear to listen to our concerns, and a mentor to show us the way forward. 

Over the past decade and a half, I have been an active participant in the dynamic IT sector. Throughout my journey, I have witnessed numerous individuals facing the challenge of limited training opportunities, resulting in their professional growth coming to a standstill. Many find themselves trapped, unable to progress due to the lack of proper skill development avenues. Recognizing the crucial link between training and empowerment for achieving a sustainable and fulfilling career, STEP Foundation has emerged as a beacon of hope. By providing individuals with comprehensive and accessible training opportunities, STEP Foundation empowers them to overcome obstacles and chart a course toward progress. This organization plays a pivotal role in equipping individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in the ever-evolving IT landscape, ultimately paving the way for a brighter and more prosperous future.

Over my two-decade tenure as a financial consultant, I have witnessed a striking reality within the financial sector – a wealth of untapped potential among students from marginalized sections. Many possess the inherent talent and aptitude to master essential tools such as Tally and advanced Excel. Unfortunately, their potential often goes unnoticed due to the dual barriers of financial constraints and limited access to educational resources. To address this inequality, our STEP Foundation Initiative has emerged, aiming to bridge this gap and provide these students with a platform to acquire practical skills. By offering courses in Tally, advanced Excel, and other employability-focused subjects, we strive to empower these talented individuals, making them not only proficient but also job-ready. Through this initiative, we aspire to unlock opportunities that were previously out of reach, fostering a more inclusive and equitable financial landscape.

I trust this message finds you all in the best of health and spirits. It is with a sense of enthusiasm and purpose that I address you today, as we stand on the cusp of a new endeavor that holds the promise of transformative change for countless lives. As philanthropists, we have been presented with a unique opportunity to make a lasting impact, and I am excited to share my thoughts on the proposed theme of “SUPPORT: Training & Empowerment.”

The theme itself encapsulates the very essence of our foundation’s mission – to uplift individuals and communities by providing them with the tools, knowledge, and resources they need to thrive and contribute meaningfully to society. In today’s rapidly evolving world, the need for support in the form of training and empowerment has never been more crucial. The challenges and opportunities presented by the digital age, the changing nature of work, and the global interconnectedness call for a holistic approach to equipping individuals with the skills and confidence to navigate these waters successfully.

Training lies at the heart of empowerment. By offering targeted and relevant training programs, we can empower individuals with the skills they require to excel in their chosen fields. From vocational training that addresses immediate employment needs to skill development programs that foster innovation and creativity, our foundation can act as a beacon of knowledge dissemination. As we design these programs, let us not only focus on technical skills but also on fostering critical thinking, adaptability, and a growth mindset – qualities that will serve individuals well in an ever-evolving landscape.

My journey in the IT sector, from a junior engineer to now a project manager, has taught me invaluable lessons. It has reinforced the significance of specific training, effective communication, and strong soft skills in achieving success. I firmly believe that one’s attitude and unwavering commitment play pivotal roles in the journey towards success. I am a staunch advocate of sharing this knowledge and empowering others. This is why I am deeply involved with the STEP foundation, an organization dedicated to providing individuals with opportunities to develop these essential skills. Through STEP, we aim to empower people and equip them with the tools they need to thrive in the dynamic world of IT and beyond.
