Pranil Naik

Pranil Naik is a trustee at LeapForWord. He is an Engineer by training and a teacher by choice, Pranil started his teaching journey in 2001 when he began weekend volunteering as a Mathematics teacher, preparing Std X students from low-income schools for their board exams. An MBA degree came somewhere down the line and the orientation shifted from doing good to solving a problem and that is when LeapForWord started.
The last decade of his life went into creating the solution that can bring English proficiency to every child who attends government run / aided free regional language schools. He will be spending the next decade in making this solution accessible to every such child. And hopefully the decade that follows will allow him the privilege of sitting on the sidelines and watch the kids take on the world that eluded them for so long.
