I know Avadhoot from the days when I compiled a book covering ‘hatke’ careers. He wrote an excellent piece explaining how he went on to become a Flight Dispatcher. Most importantly, he explained not only the positive sides but also the negative sides of his profession like a seasoned career counsellor.
Later, I invited him to my school to talk to a bunch of 9th and 10th graders to talk about his profession and various adjacent professions. He took keen interest in answering their questions at length.
I think Avadhoot has a knack in connecting with children of various ages. This, along with his professional training in Career Counseling and his emphasis on hands-on learning, will make him an exceptional advisor. I wish him the very best of luck.

I am working in an mnc and have a good job oriented life, but lately I experienced that some of my self employment related ideas have slowly started occupying my mind and then my mind started going into a confused state.. so I approached Swachhandee, where I met Mr Avadhoot. I wanted to know whether it's a good idea to gradually initiate and work on my ideas parallelly along with my present job, so then he conducted a session and a career related test for me, which really helped me to clarify my career road map, would like to thank Mr. Avadhoot for his professional advice.
I had joined the Resume Building and Interview Skills Workshop . Had a really great experience throughout and learned a lot about how to present myself in any Interview. Thanks a Lot to Avdhoot Sir for all the streamlined sessions and for making me learn about all aspects of how a Corporate works . The Workshop really helped me understanding how to think and present my Resume or Interview Skills from a Corporate perspective. Really Thankful to Avdhoot Sir for such a great initiative of SwaChhandee and All The Best for your Future Endeavors ✌😃
"After pursuing 15 years of career in Visual Media Marketing & Communication, I was facing a saturation point past few months.
I appreciate Mr. Avadhoot for being a good listener, patient and understanding. He suggested Career Assessment test which gave a clear and detailed picture about whether I need a total career change; or need some restructuring in my existing work profile.
Creative Thinking test worked as an introspection into my personality.
Thank You SwaChhandee to guide me to get rid of a saturation point/ dilemma in my career journey.
I had visited the councellor, Mr. Samant with the intention of getting a clear picture about my daughter's career inclination after SSC and I was satisfied by the observations and final report given by him. The career opportunities were shortlisted as per the conversation and the test taken and were also explained in detail. Thanks to Mr. Samant for providing crucial advice for making equally crucial career decisions for my daughter.
Although I was certain in my career selection towards arts, humanities and art forms; I was confused with stream and career options in future. The career mentor and stream selector modules have helped me build a fair understanding of various options and the areas to focus on. Many thanks to Team SwaChhandee for guiding me to the right module choices and taking me through this process.
Avadhoot Sir patiently heard all our objectives and guided us precisely to our goals. We as parents got the clarity on the way forward towards the aspirations of our son. He still answers our queries even after the sessions are done.
Overall good experience, helpful for the child & parents to understand their kid’s liking, aptitude & basic capabilities. Definitely useful for the students for deciding the career selection.
Career guidance session was very informative and mind boosting. It is good guidance to start your career.
Excellent guidance given by Avadhoot and also personally explained the entire report.
It was really wonderful experience. We got clarity in career guidance.
It was a very good experience for my son and nephew.
It's a very well-planned program.

I did trek with SwaChhandee on Sondai fort. It was a Mansoon trek. Nicely arranged, discipline trek. Food arrangement was nice. There were two guides. They not only showed the path but they were giving local information about the fort which is I think very interesting. Avadhoot sir gives prior info of what to carry for trek, time schedule of trek and he is very particular of his time management. Children and newbees will definitely enjoy these trek. I highhly recommend SwaChhandee for such a refreshing treks.
I have been fortunate to be a part of this group through a common acquaintance. I have been on a trek to Sondai fort with the swachandee team and had a feel good experience. I look forward to be able to contribute to their swachandee activities in any way I can. Even the WhatsApp group created shares good and informative posts.

Swachandee as a budding organisation is leaving no stone unturned to see that outbound learning happens. As an educator I feel that all their programs are in alignment with the need of NEP.
