Speaker:

Dr Madhav Chavan, Co-Founder, Board Member and Former CEO, Pratham; Social Activist and Entrepreneur

Dr Madhav Chavan moved from the field of chemistry to the field of literacy a few years after his return to India after having acquired a Ph. D. and some post-doctoral experience in the United States.

He worked in the field of adult literacy from 1989 to 1994, inspired by the National Literacy Mission launched by late Mr. Rajiv Gandhi, then Prime Minister of India. In 1994, UNICEF in Mumbai put him in charge of creating a ‘societal mission’ to universalize primary education in the city of Mumbai. As a result, he co-founded Pratham, which started in 1994-95 as a Mumbai-based organization and has now grown to be one of India’s largest NGOs.

Pratham works across the country with millions of children every year, focusing on basic learning outcomes including reading and math. Its flagship programs, Read India and the Annual Status of Education Report, have earned the organization a reputation as a pedagogy and advocacy innovator that has influenced policy and practice at the national and international level. He stepped down as CEO of Pratham Education Foundation, but remains on its Board, and actively leads the new experimentation in use of technology for education.

Dr Chavan has been personally recognized for his work with the WISE Prize and The Skoll Award for social entrepreneurship, among other honors. His organization, Pratham, has received the Kravis Prize for Leadership, the BBVA Frontiers of Knowledge Award for developmental work, and the LUI Che Woo Prize for positive energy.
