Reasons Why You Should Volunteer At Breakthrough.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
  • You get to create action in your community. Here is the story from one such individual who has sought change in their community.
  • You get to work towards issues of gender. It can be exhausting to be a mute spectator to the unfolding violence against women. Your time is the best contribution you can make to this cause.
  • Connect with fellow changemakers. Have a space to work on yourself in a safe and supportive environment. We uplift ourselves and each other through bonding exercises ensuring that you’re having fun while you change the world.
  • Be a part of a larger community of change-makers and influencers. Have a space where you can take charge and create solutions.
  • Become an influencer yourself. Many of our employees have been volunteers in the past. Many of our volunteers, armed with a new understanding of gender, go on to do their own things and create change their own way.
  • We provide certificates for your valuable contribution. If your college requires you to work or if you’re looking for experience before you step out to the market of day-in, day-out, we want to ask you to consider working for human rights.
  • It starts with YOU. As Gandhi said, “be the change you want to see in the world”. If you’re bothered by the state of things in the world, volunteer to change it.

We got a unexpected call from a volunteer from panipat today, who was extremely excited, thrilled to share how he has taken his action project to the field which received great response from the community!

This volunteer was part of recent leadership training, where he came up with an idea to use theatre as tool to create awareness and empower the community, but wasn’t sure how will he do this. He later also attended some theatre workshop as well organised by the team.

We would like to share his message to give you glimpse of his excitement.

आज नाटक की प्रस्तुति नवला ग्रुप ऑफ़ इंस्टिट्यूट, उझा गॉव, पानीपत में कि गई।​ प्रस्तुति के पहले हम सबने मिलकर गलियों में जाकर लोगों को इक्कठा किया इस दौरान वॉलेंटियर्स में बिलकुल भी झिझक नही थी वे खुद ही घरों में भी जाकर महिलाओं व पुरुषों को नाटक के लिए आमन्त्रित कर रहे थे। नाटक प्रस्तुति से पहले  कुछ बातचीत रखी की यह नाटक महिला मुद्दों पर आधारित जिसका महतवपूर्ण सन्देश हैं की जितनी ज्यादा महिलाये व लड़कियां घरों से बाहर स्कूलों, कॉलेजो और काम करने वाली जगहों पर होंगी ये दुनिया उतनी ही बेहतर व सुरक्षित होगी। नाटक प्रस्तुति के बाद वॉलेंटियर्स ने लोगों से बातचीत की और उनके दृष्टिकोण को जाना की वे इन समस्याओं व महिला अधिकारों के बारे में क्या सोचते हैं। असल में यही हमारी ब्रेकथ्रू जनरेशन हैं जो ब्रेकथ्रू के सन्देश को लेकर लोगों के बीच काम करेंगे। आज के कार्यक्रम से लगा की जिन वोलेंटियर्स को हम ब्रेकथ्रू जनरेशन के रूप में देखने का प्रयास कर रहे हैं वह कारगर साबित हो रहा हैं। नाटक के बाद दर्शकों से नाटक के सन्देश को और ज्यादा आगे ले जाने व परिवर्तन की शुरुआत खुद से करने का आवाहन किया। नाटक मंचन के समय 280 विद्यार्थियों और गॉव वालो की संख्या रही। नाटक के बाद हमने व्यूज लिए और सभी ने शपथ ली कि आज के बाद हम भी लड़कियो को भी बराबर अधिकार देंगे व हर क्षेत्र में लड़कियो को प्रोत्साहन करेंगे।
