“Young people, when they understand the problems, are empowered to take action.
When we listen to their voices (they) actually are changing the world and making it better for people, for animals and for the environment because everything is interconnected.”
– Dr. Jane Goodall
Recently, we saw an inspiring example of the power of community in action when we were approached by a group of young student doctors from the Sri Guru Ram Das University of Health Sciences, Amritsar, to explore volunteering opportunities as a team.
Dr. Harsimar Kaur, Dr. Yukti Bellani, Dr. Bhavneet Kaur, Dr. Ishmeet Kaur, Dr. Ashrita and Dr. Harmajot Singh were enthusiastic about volunteering their medical knowledge and learning to help make a difference. Despite the lockdown and the geographical distance, opportunities for collaboration were identified. The young doctors were on boarded as a team to run medical knowledge sharing sessions on diverse health and wellness topics as a part of the Dragonflies Everywhere knowledge and learning webinar series for projects at the grassroots.

Power of collaboration
One individual volunteering their privilege is inspirational. But when a group of individuals commit their collective privilege to change the world, it is sheer magic. And this is what we call our swarm effect!
Our Dragonfly swarms are communities of change champions who leverage on a wide and diverse spectrum of privilege – skills, expertise, resources, networks, information, etc – to collaborate with one another and social change projects at the grassroots, resulting in high value creation at the grassroots. The diversity of privilege combined with the power of collaboration inevitably creates exponential impact. It is the power of the swarm.
If you are an individual who is passionate about creating a better world, you can build a swarm of your own – friends, family, colleagues – who share your passion to support social change. If you are looking for a swarm, we can help you find your tribe.
If you are a business looking beyond mere compliance, you can build employee Dragonfly Swarms which leverage on employee skills and business competencies to create sustainable, high-value CSR impact. Swarms are also the perfect platform for enhancing employee engagement.
