Swathy's first-hand experience at Pratham

- by Swathy Swaminathan

I joined Pratham after an MBA, with an aim to make a difference to the world.  I joined on the 10th of May 2012 and haven’t looked back since. The place is brimming with people out to make a positive impact on the world. My first few days were spent getting to know everybody at Pratham. I was quite amazed at the network and the reach of Pratham. Every Pratham employee worked with the ultimate objective of improving someone’s life. The passion for change, and the determination to work towards the same, was widespread amongst the employees. For those who are travel enthusiasts there is no dearth of opportunities to visit the spectacular countryside. Pratham’s network reaches out into the remote corners of the country. Depending on the program one is associated with, one can travel the length and breadth of the country. One can witness the amazing work that Pratham is doing for the poor kids across the country. One can feel the dedication of our ground level staff in improving the lives of the students.

All in all, Pratham has widened my horizons and given me a new perspective on the social sector. I am sure it can do the same to you.
