  • Anish Madhavan
    Head, Field Institutes

    While my own individual contribution may only have a limited direct impact, the understanding that it is contributing to a larger organizational strategy that has more than a good chance of impacting education in our country in a positive and long-lasting manner gives me satisfaction.

  • Geetika Bhandari
    Barmer District Institute

    As part of the assessment team, I have the opportunity to interact with teachers and students from different districts across India. It has helped in shaping my perspectives on education and deepened my understanding of issues faced by teachers. This in turn has only strengthened my belief in the Foundation’s vision and my resolve to continue to work in this field.

  • Paresh Kumar Pandya
    Leader, Rajsamand District Institute

    I like the work culture of the Foundation where you have the freedom to explore within a large well-defined scope. It is a great opportunity to work with people from different domains. Here I have an opportunity to work and grow as interacting with the teachers and leading our team requires me to be constantly updated on the field of education.

  • Madhav Krishna
    Talent Partner-Field, Azim Premji Foundation

    Born and brought up in the hills of Uttarakhand, I always wanted to work here and to have the opportunity to be working for such a cause here, is almost like a dream. What has been a constant motivator for me over the past 5-6 years in the Foundation is the feeling of being able to do something new every day, the value given to ideas and the space available for dialogue. Individuals and their thoughts are greatly valued here, which is one of the most beautiful things about this organization.

  • Shubha HK
    Manager- Education for the Children of Migrant Labour (ECML)

    I am faced with challenges every day and at the same time I have a lot of freedom, opportunity and timely guidance to address them. I have plenty of opportunities to explore, to express, to experiment, to learn, to know, to enjoy. Every day brings a new lesson about working with children and parents of the migrant community at large. I continue to learn through this experience.

  • Harish Shah
    Head, Infrastructure Management Function

    While various aspects of my job are more or less similar to the corporate world, there is immense peace and satisfaction that I am able to use my experience and skills to indirectly contribute to a better education for children.

  • Sowmya N
    Mandya District Institute

    What I appreciate most about the organisation is that every employee is required to spend 25% of his/her time in self capacity building to contribute in a more effective manner in the field. There is an opportunity for everyone to learn and grow.
