For the past 10 years, Hunar Ghar has been a hub of local transformation in one of the most marginalised regions of India. Through integrated education, health and community development, Hunar Ghar has been instrumental in bringing about a series of transitions, as evident from increased access to quality education and reliable healthcare and meaningful community engagement. As this story of transitions continues, the Hunar Ghar project is looking at becoming an inspiration centre for innovation, overcoming developmental challenges and demonstrating that change can be brought about in the lives of some of the most under-served communities. We are looking for an exceptional educational leader for the role of Chief Operations Officer (COO) of Educate for Life who has the potential of turning Hunar Ghar into such an inspiration centre.

At Educate for Life, we believe that community members are an important part of school accountability system and should be able to provide their insight and advice on how to improve the school. Child Learning Demonstration Days at Hunar Ghar are one of the key processes that enable this as explained in detail in our Teacher’s Handbook. These are monthly events where children demonstrate what they have learnt in their classrooms in front of the whole community. Our Fundraising and Communications officer Shwetambera writes about her experience of attending the Child Learning Demonstration event conducted in October before Diwali holidays in school.
