THE TEAM

Meet the people behind Yein Udaan

___________________

Founder & CEO

Vedika Agarwal has a Master’s degree in Leadership from the World #1 UCL Institute of Education, UK and a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Statistics from St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai. While at college, she volunteered with Door Step School, teaching English and Math to girls who were forced to scale fish at the docks all day. This experience moved her to apply for the Teach For India Fellowship program, wherein she taught 40 children from grades 2 to 5. After her Fellowship ended in April 2017, Vedika established Yein Udaan to continue working with underprivileged kids. Currently, she is also the School Coordinator at SVA School for Girls in Madurai, where she develops curriculum and trains 8 teachers, thereby impacting 210 girls in grades 1 to 5.

Head of Operations

Sunitha Ravichandran has a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering and a Bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology. She has volunteered for several organisations while pursuing her studies in the USA. Sunitha began her journey at Yein Udaan as a volunteer in December 2017. Moved by the parents’ and children’s stories, she decided to join the team as a full-time core team member. Currently, Sunitha manages operations at all our community centres. Her core responsibilities include financial management, volunteer training and program execution.

Community Coordinators

Yein Udaan would not have overcome its hurdles if not for the support and love of the community members. They have played a large role in formulating our vision and mission, and provide us contextual guidance. Our designated community coordinators work as liaisons between the organisation’s core team and community members. They also ensure that our work has the potential to impact the community beyond the centre, by providing us information on the community’s needs.
