Job Description

This position offers an experienced leader the opportunity to excel in its field while working with of the most innovative education transformation programs in India. As of today, we have touched the lives of 7 million children across 76,000 schools in Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Jharkhand & Uttarakhand.

About Sampark Foundation

We chose to focus on primary education in government schools because of the dismal record in learning outcomes for India’s 144 million children in the public education system. Third party assessments show poor learning levels in most children; students in grade 3 and grade 5 are not reaching grade appropriate levels in Math and Language. Despite doubling of investment in education by the government over the last decade, the learning outcomes have shown a negative trend. India’s demographic dividend is fast becoming India’s biggest challenge.

Sampark Foundation was founded by Anupama Nayar & Vineet Nayar (Ex CEO, HCL Technologies) with a belief that “frugal innovation” along with relentless execution in partnership with the government can drive large scale change in learning outcomes. Our goal is to design and implement frugal innovation ideas that would transform learning outcomes for 20 million children studying in 200,000 rural government schools by 2025, at less than $1 per child per annum.
