Entrepreneurs in India- Our Article on India Today
Updated: Nov 18, 2020
As part of the Teach For India Fellowship, many young Indians decided to leave their pre-defined career paths and teach in a low-income classroom for two years. Over 10 years since the organisation’s inception, close to 67% of them continue to remain in education.
Today, those leaders are starting their own schools, running organizations that are serving the poor, holding important roles in politics, and so much more.
However, while Teach For India over the years has seen tons of such stories of transformation, what makes the organisation’s impact truly heartening, are the growing examples of women entrepreneurs and leaders, who are taking their place as founders and owners of social enterprises, creating ripples not only as teachers in the classroom, but mobilising lasting change for the nation.
