TESTIMONIALS

Apoorwa Gaurie Ganguli

“I was keen to intern at WOTR, as they have done pioneering work in both watershed development and gender mainstreaming. I have read extensively about the rural areas of our country and the conditions there, but when I actually joined WOTR I got a ground-level view. I stayed in villages in Aurangabad district and interacted closely with the local people there. Through this interaction, I came to realize that actually changing anything on the ground requires you to be sensitive to the rural communities and see things from their point of view. You need to be inclusive for your work to succeed. This is especially true when it comes to the long-term success of your project.”

“I was studying political science but at WOTR I could expand my horizon in writing and filming for the public as well as working on studies and reports. Working for WOTR means that you can be creative and that you have the freedom to be the creator of you own project.”
