What compelled you to participate in the Bootcamp?

I believe that students have lots of ideas and their perspectives are still rather pure (or untainted?). I was keen to join the bootcamp because Tanoti is at a stage where it is interested to grow and there could be a chance that the participants have something interesting to propose. 

Looking at the winning team's solution, how do you think this approach will help you address the problem at hand? (How would it be different from other solutions you have tried?)

Tanoti’s desire is to grow without committing too much towards development costs. The winning team’s solution would be one of the ways to make it happen. We have always been deploying our internal funds and employing our internal resources. The proposed solution will allow us to tap external resources as a step towards the growth of our business.

What was your experience like in the Bootcamp?

I enjoyed the interaction with students who are eager to learn and contribute. 

What do you hope to see more from your community?

I hope to see improved standards of living and empowerment within the communities with which we work.

Any advice for people hoping to get into community/social work?

This kind of work is only for people who have enough to give and have an overriding interest to give. One should possess sufficient health, wealth and physical ability so as not to worry about oneself when undertaking community work because the work is never about the person, it is always about the beneficiaries. Those who prioritise their own tangible needs over the needs of the beneficiaries should admit their incapacity to work in this field and pursue something else which will serve their personal needs.
