Ritu Pasricha

School Leader -Late Dattoba Ramchandra Kale English Medium School, Kalewadi


Ritu joined Akanksha foundation six years ago after working in corporates for over 10 years. The satisfaction she got in education line was far more than working with corporates. Ritu joined as an Intervention teacher and the curiosity to learn and grow in this field was a big reason for her to join the Leadership Academy.

Ritu shares, “The facilitators in the training had the expertise in a variety of fields that helped me broaden my perspective and view education from a different angle. The sessions were useful to enhance my leadership skills which has now provided me with a strong foundation in my current role as a School Leader. I am glad that I was a part of the SLA that gave me the exposure to confidently pursue my dream to reach out, not only to children but also communities at large.”

School Leader - Bopkhel English Medium School


Sushma always wanted to explore her potential as a leader, wanted to take greater responsibilities. She wanted her experience to reach the larger community, wanted to see the change at a whole school and community level.

Sushma shares, “I joined the SLA to explore my leadership skills. After joining SLA I got a clarity on many aspects of leadership through the leadership competency framework. I mainly benefitted from the strands of administration, people and culture and responsibilities of a School Leader. The sessions were conducted in a very effective way, where experts from the specific fields took the sessions. The zoom in and zoom out process helped to understand the various perspectives of leadership. The skill building through case studies gave me the experience of on field problem solving. The role plays for difficult conversations gave me the confidence to communicate clearly. SLA gave me an opportunity to reflect and act in order to sharpen my leadership skills and follow my passion to impart good quality education for all children.”
