Responsibilities 🤓

Being the co-founder, Project Prayogshala provides me with an opportunity to juggle🤹🏾 multiple responsibilities as follows:

  • Managing partnerships🤝.
  • Onboarding new Prayogshalas💡.
  • Developing and managing the technological aspects of the initiative.
  • Designing the curriculum and curating the making activities.

Accomplishments 🎉

  • Project Prayogshala was identified to be one of the impactful💪🏾 social impact projects by Ashoka University.
  • The initiative has impacted over 1000 children. We have enabled the establishment of 11 Prayogshalas💡 in different locations despite the constraints caused by the pandemic.

Learnings 💡

  • Starting up Project Prayogshala taught me the importance of assembling the right founding team.
  • I had to pitch Project Prayogshala to at least 40 different individuals before I had the first buy-in outside our pilot. This initiative truly pushed me out of my comfort zone and helped me hone my presentation skills.
  • As the number of Prayogshalas adding to our roster is on a steady rise, it provides me with an opportunity to design a scalable program model without compromising on quality.
