This chart represents the key teams that function within the Foundation.
Field Institutes and Schools
Field Institutes are district-level institutions focused on improving the public education system. They work in collaboration with state governments to create avenues for professional development of teachers, school leaders, teacher educators and other education officials. They also work to reform school curriculum, teacher-education curriculum and related issues of education policy. Azim Premji Schools aim to demonstrate good school level practices at costs and constraints similar to that of rural government schools. As of 2016, our schools are operational in the following states (districts): Uttarakhand (Udham Singh Nagar, Uttarkashi), Rajasthan (Tonk, Sirohi, Barmer), Karnataka (Yadgir, Kalaburagi) and Chattisgarh (Dhamtari). These schools are not intended to supplant or supplement the government school system in any way – but to help in local capacity building and awareness creation for “quality education”.
This team is concerned with all aspects of finance for the Foundation ranging from accounting and controllership, investment management, planning & budgeting, operations support, analytics and legal and statutory compliance.
The People Function team handles recruitment, talent engagement, development, compensation and benefits and support for the Azim Premji Foundation. The team also manages the Campus and Fellowship programs. Members of the People function are based in the various districts across the country as well as in Bangalore.
