2020 was about laying the ‘foundation’ to take the AA ecosystem live. 2021 was to take the AA ecosystem ‘live’!
Like for everyone else, the pandemic brought a grinding halt to the various AA related projects that were being worked on. Slowly and steadily everyone was getting adjusted to newer ways of working. Internally at Sahamati, the volunteers made sure that nothing slowed down, nor did their passion wither.
A culmination of all the efforts by our volunteers led to fruition in 2021. Large banks (HDFC, Axis, ICICI, Indusind etc) adopted and went live with AA. The grand September-2 AA Ecosystem Go-Live event was a celebration of this as it also showcased the excitement, anticipation and positivity amongst the industry participants, key personnel, startup founders and influencers
Our volunteers continued to contribute to areas of product, policies, technical, legal and much more through the year 2021. We also added some new volunteers to our family who has brought some valuable inputs to the ecosystem. With deep appreciation, we would like to acknowledge the people who took full ownership of the projects they volunteered for and delivered much more than they had to.
Hall of Fame for 2021
Leadership is an extremely important part of building and strengthening the future of the AA ecosystem. It is our belief that the people who selflessly gave their time and talent should be acknowledged as they also serve to be an inspiration to others. The Volunteer Hall of Fame aims to enshrine the achievements of those that have set the standards for selfless giving for a larger benefit of the AA ecosystem.
The Sahamati Volunteer Hall of Fame is the most prestigious honor volunteers can receive; the people selected have freely given their precious time and talent in countless ways towards different projects.
