The nature of programmes in Sharana have always been a consequence or a reaction to a specific need. Whether a rural setting or an urban slum as an organisation we believe in being facilitators to issues that the target group themselves identify as areas that need attention or solutions. While we work on these points we also are keenly aware of the necessity to adapt and also realise when an issue, a programme or an activity has reached its logical or natural conclusion. We firmly believe that the yardstick of a good programme is a quantifiable and qualitative change and development in the ground reality.
Sharana receives several volunteers every year, particularly from Europe and the United States. Volunteers bring new energy and skill-sets to the organization, along with stories and experiences from other parts of the world.
