About the Organization:

Azim Premji Foundation is a not-for profit organisation that has been working since 2000 with the elementary education system in rural government schools. The Foundation began by implementing various programmes to improve educational quality across the country. By 2010 however it became clear that working on a “project” mode was inadequate and it takes continuous effort over many decades for any deep-rooted change to happen. The primary goal of the Foundation is to contribute to a society that is “a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society” as envisaged in the Constitution of India. Towards this goal, we have identified education as a critical area that has direct impact on the economic, social and cultural development of the nation.

Azim Premji Foundation Fellowship

The Azim Premji Foundation Fellowship is an opportunity for working professionals from diverse fields, who are looking for meaningful ways to contribute to social change. The Fellowship journey, as experienced by many, is a rich amalgamation of learning about the public education system in the country, contributing to the ground as well as building a career in the social sector.

During the programme, Azim Premji Foundation will give the Fellows an immersive experience of the real India, with in-depth learning about education, and an opportunity to contribute to a just, equitable, humane and sustainable society.

During the 1-year programme, Fellows work at some of the most remote locations in India, exploring the nuances of public education in close association with government schools in rural India. They spend a minimum of 120 days in Azim Premji Foundation’s programme in a government school classroom. Fellows are placed in a school in one of our locations, where, apart from teaching they also engage with teachers, community and education functionaries.
