ABOUT

I'm Debadrita, founder of Precious Paws Foundation - a not-for-profit organisation that assists in the rehabilitation and adoption of abandoned dogs.

I quit my job in corporate as a Quality Training Specialist to manage and run Precious Paws full time. And since then, I haven't looked back.

From housing 12 dogs in a 2BHK apartment to the 10,000sq.ft. shelter, boarding space, and home cooked meal services - I have come a long way in building myself as well as the organisation from scratch.

 

SKILLS & EXPERTISE

  • Strategic Outlook : Always looking at the big picture to set and achieve a goal. Having worked on small and big goals of the foundation for over a decade, my approach to problems and their solutions is always based on the end result.

  • Effective Communication: As a not-for-profit organisation, relationships and communication with peers, vendors, and people from other walks of life tend to become an integral part of gaining funds and support. During this decade, I have learnt to communication with different kinds of people with different mindsets, and have gained many loyalists with the NGO.

  • Project Management :  I have the actual manage-people-and-anticipate-what-can-go-wrong hands-on project management experience.

  • Empathy and Listening Skills: In my experience, no two people are the same. Keeping this as a premise has enabled me to develop my listening skills, and ensure everyone I interact with leave happy from the shelter or the boarding. 

  • Experience with Social Media and Branding : From making old-style videos for PPF fundraisers, to social media campaigns for adoption appeals - I have developed PPF and sister brands from scratch. 

  • Knowledge of MS Office Suite : From working at corporates like Yahoo! and Dell, to building my own NGO from ground up, MS Excel, MS Powerpoint, Canva, and other Audio Visual Editing Softwares have been my best friend and colleague.
