Vrundan Bawankar

Executive Director, Pawan Public School

Vrundan Bawankar is Executive Director of Pawan Public School. By the time she graduated from college, her life-long dream of joining the Indian Armed Forces to become a pilot was close to becoming reality. But a chance school gathering challenged her to soar in different skies. At the age of 21, she decided that her battlefield would be the rural primary education sector, not the blue skies of our beloved country. In addition to her work as an Executive Director of Pawan Public School, run by Gram Vikas Sanstha, she is a Project Manager with Pratham Education Foundation. She also recently started a livelihood program for single mothers. She is actively involved with NIRMAN, Jagriti Yatra, and Alag Angle. She was chosen as A Young Leader 2017, IVLP, by the US Government, where she represented India in the US.
