Volunteering
Week
Tata Volunteering Week (TVW), celebrated in March and September every year, is an event-based format that brings together Tata volunteers worldwide to participate in small acts of volunteering. The volunteering activities are curated by companies and offered to volunteers, who participate in groups. A typical TVW activity lasts half a day and is done on official time.
TVW enables a volunteer to participate in volunteering activities organised by other Tata companies, thus immensely broadening the scope of the format. It also allows employees to volunteer along with their family members, thus not taking away precious family time, but providing an opportunity of a shared experience. Tata Volunteering Weeks have gradually extended to become volunteering months as colleagues and Tata companies sought more time to be able to ensure that more volunteers were able to contribute.

Barter For Change
Tata Communications in Pune conducted a 'Barter For Change' activity. The activity used the century old barter system to create social impact. The identified cause for this activity was to provide educational and school items for underprivileged students. Each volunteer team was provided with INR 200. The volunteers had to buy any school material with the given amount at the market price. Post the first purchase, they could only barter the items for other items of higher value. 6 teams were part of the activity with INR 1,200 provided as the total investment.
At the end of the activity, the volunteers managed to procure items worth INR 1,10,000 - 91 times the initial amount.
