STEP UP: TOTVA
Dhiritman Mallick, India
Step-Up is Deloitte India’s largest professional skills-based volunteering programme centred on providing skills-based volunteering experiences that allow its practitioners to apply and develop their professional and leadership skills to create positive social impact in areas of personal passion. Dhritiman has been working with Toybank as a Step-Up project lead since late 2019.
Toybank is an Indian charity that works with 50,000+ children and 2,000+ teachers to propagate play-enabled learning. They develop programmes and initiatives focussed on the behavioural and mental growth of at-risk children in their most impressionable years of life through “Play-based Learning”.
Through the Step-Up initiative, Dhritiman worked with the Toybank team to develop a five-year strategic roadmap designing the donor targeting, digital outreach and data interpretation/operations processes for the organisation. He led the project with support from a group of colleagues and conducted visioning workshops with the organisation to identify their leadership priorities and align their vision.
The engagement focussed on three major areas. The first was to develop the donor outreach and digital marketing strategy. The second was to help Toybank interpret and present the impact data it collects. The third was to derive insights from their data and create an operations strategy to transform Toybank into a standardised process-driven organisation.
Dhritiman leveraged his own expertise in Deloitte’s strategy consulting to help the non-profit standardise its processes, scale up operations, and secure sustainable funding streams. This will in turn help Toybank develop more beneficial and long-term support of at-risk children, their families and the teachers responsible for their education.
