Namaste. My name is Anuja Sawant. I help individuals and organizations meet their environmental, social, and sustainability goals. My dedication lies in understanding what motivates them to reach these goals and the circumstances they are surrounded by. This makes each project we work on a unique one. If you are looking for someone to guide you throughout the process, you are in the right place. If it helps, I am a Green Technologist and Chemical Engineer by training.
You are probably interested in understanding my background as a freelancer. Going back, at the age of 24, I signed my first contract as a freelancer with an international not-for-profit organization working remotely from India. As a freelancer, I have worked with several not-for-profit organizations such as Red Dot Foundation Global (Safecity) – North America; Amazon Rainforest Conservancy – Canada; Green Fashion Week – Italy; and GreenHatters – USA. I have served progressive organizations like IKEA as a full-time employee and helped them achieve their goals.
Over the years, I’ve equipped myself with skills such as secondary research and writing, content creation, social media, relationship building, engagement, and project management. Moreover, I bring two kinds of perspectives to the table – of an insider and an outsider. That’s because I have lived and worked in 3 countries – India, USA, and Canada. I’m first and foremost a Mumbaikar but I call two more places home – New Jersey and Metro Vancouver. If you are still curious, you can listen to this podcast by Sustainable Century where I am interviewed about my journey from India to Vancouver.
Does this sound useful to you? Let’s chat! I look forward to hearing from you – about your unique challenges. It’s a journey we will take together until we reach our goals.
