Such Conversations Matter by SN
SCM is a collection of conversations that should be part of our daily discussions but aren’t because of various reasons. SCM is a place where I talk to people who are niche experts and/or have developed expertise through their life experience on the themes of Sustainability, Tech for Good, Global Citizenship, Mental Health, Education and other areas. Hello everyone, I am Saurabh Nanda and I ask interesting questions. I was a Computer Engineer. I am now an Educator, a Career Consultant, and a sustainability proponent.
“…I think the single most important piece now, especially over the last two years that has opened up for us is for NGOs to plan for scale… What was exposed in the last 2 years was that nobody… planned for scale” – Ramesh
Meet Ramesh Balasundaram and Binu Ramesh, founders and leaders of the NGO BalUtsav, headquartered in Bangalore, India. BalUtsav helps to bring life-changing education to children living in India, thus facilitating learning for the entire life cycle: from childhood to livelihood. They work in government schools in 5 states in India and impact over 800,000 students. During the COVID-19 lockdown, Ramesh and Binu also assisted in the migrant crisis, distributing food, medicines, water and other essentials.
Ramesh and Binu left their corporate training careers to work in the development sector full time since 2008. Ramesh has also worked with the Government of Karnataka consulting in the Knowledge Commission. They share an indelible desire with me and SCM, for the youth of India to step in and start making the development sector more innovative and effective.
