Motivation to work with CITF
At the very beginning of the lockdown period itself, Vishant proactively reached out to the Municipal Government in his city and provided advance and practicable solutions for the delivery of essential items to households. This initiative was mainly an effort to keep everyone safe and inside their homes. With an ‘army of doctors’ tirelessly and continually performing the duties like those of the army at the borders, Vishant got the inspiration to join CITF and make an impact.
Contributions to CITF
Vishant plays the role of a Program Manager within the CITF Tech team. His primary duty is to ensure that all projects undertaken by the organisation are delivered on time without any difficulties. He also has a chief contribution in coordinating the communication between tech team and various other teams. In this, he parallels himself to the ‘12th man of the Tech team’.
In addition, Vishant also represents the Tech team in meetings with other groups, as well as in internal meetings. The responsibility is also cross-functional, wherein Vishant has interacted with other teams for their needs, and has conveyed the same to the experts in the Tech team. Vishant has helped the CITF team with this network of experts to build different platforms. He sees a vast potential in the team’s work, and believes that there is always more room to explore, and looks forward to keep contributing for the greater good.
