Seven years in a full time role, and seven more as volunteer, as India’s largest NGO – Pratham – which is committed to helping every child in India attend school and learn well. I have worked with teams on helping them budget and plan their cash flows, report in donor-designated formats and in the training of new teachers.
Since 2015, I have become involved in many civic initiatives in the city of Chennai. I volunteer with Chennai City Connect Foundation, in the areas of citizen education and empowerment, and solid waste management including segregation and composting.
in December 2015, I joined the Board of Oorvani Foundation, with the express mission of launching Citizen Matters Chennai – independent, deep diving research and news of city public affairs, community and culture. We hope to emulate the success of Citizen Matters Bengaluru, in building a vibrant community of contributors who care for the city of Chennai, and are willing to raise their voices and pens to help improve the quality of life here
