    Azim Premji Foundation motivates you to immerse yourself from your own experience to appreciate a continuous and experiential learning process. Since the beginning of my professional journey, I have been given challenging opportunities to work with teachers and develop understanding of education, school and society. Azim Premji Foundation work culture has also influenced my personal growth immensely and encouraged me to look deeper in every aspect of education to contribute constructively for its betterment.

    The Associate program has proved to be the best platform for me as an employee. The full one year journey has been a journey of learning. This program has played a very important part in development of my personal life as well, in addition to my career. Being a student of Science, developing my skills in basics of Language and Mathematics has been very interesting. The democratic setup of learning and performance has been a new experience for me.

    Foundation gives ample opportunities to explore Education, primarily the public education system and its teachers, being utterly integral to the system. This happens through field experiences, internal capacity enhancement workshops and formal or informal discussions. The values, vision and work culture enable a conducive environment of learning to grow and evolve with optimism towards change while being critically reflective and thus contributing to teacher professional development.
