Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?

About Sampark Foundation
We chose to focus on primary education in government schools because of the dismal record in learning outcomes for the 144 million children studying in the Indian public education system. Investments in education have doubled over the last decade but learning outcomes have shown a negative trend.
Sampark Foundation was founded by Anupama Nayar & Vineet Nayar (Ex CEO, HCL Technologies) with a belief that ‘frugal innovations’, 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 innovations to transform learning outcomes for 20 million children studying in 200,000 rural government schools by 2025, at less than $1 per child per annum.
Sampark Smart Shala is one of the largest education transformation programmes in the world
The Founders are the core sponsors – thus the Foundation is not dependent on annual funding by partners
The role offers an opportunity to work with and learn from Vineet Nayar, widely known for his #EmployeesFirst philosophy and the large-scale transformation of HCL technologies from a $0.7 billion company to a $4.7 billion global technology services company with over 85,000 employees across 32 countries. The role handles and front-faces all the Marketing and Communications of VN.com, an initiative that builds on Vineet Nayar’s identity as a management visionary.
