Careers

We are continually looking for talented and motivated individuals interested in the area of education to work with us on our journey towards social change.

Working at the Foundation

The Foundation offers the unique opportunity to combine professional growth with social commitment and purpose.

You will be engaging with a talent pool of passionate and highly qualified members with four out of five possessing a masters or doctorate degree.

Experience an environment with high diversity where people from different backgrounds, cultures and domains of expertise are united by a common purpose.

Indulge in a culture of learning reading, reflecting and engaging with ideas in education and development.

We believe building knowledge through research is critical but this must be deeply rooted in practical ground realities for applicability. We provide the opportunity to apply theoretical principles in the practical testbed.

Working on the ground is a value for us. We love working on the ground and also believe in theorizing the practices. Creating knowledge out of work is something our members live day in and day out.
