WORK @17000ft KARGIL OFFICE

Our Kargil Office is the Operations Head for Kargil District and in charge of program implementation across 500+ Govt Schools. You are likely to find just one or two of us if you drop in, since almost everybody is out travelling in remote villages for days at a time. Our Kargil team is a bunch of young, fiercely enthusiastic and committed Kargilis, all belonging to the very remote regions that we try to impact through our programs. These are the leaders who will then go on to inspire people from their villages.

Living and working here is not for the unadventurous, faint of heart or even for those who like quiet desk jobs. Kargil, while much smaller than Leh, has some extremely tough regions. Work here tough, unending and involves constant travel in extremely remote areas for days and weeks at a time. The demands of the on-field work in Kargil is higher, given the lack of any structured interventions in this area for a long time.

Our Kargil Office does not have a "season", since education does not have a season. We work for 12 months in a year, even in the harshest of winters. 

We are always looking for good people to be a part of our ever growing team.An ability to travel and stay for extended periods in remote villages with minimum resources is a must. Physical fitness, knowledge of the terrain and a willingness to work independently is a quality that everyone on our team possess. The internet and electricity may not work very well here, but we are a highly technical team and possessing good computer skills is mandatory for everyone.

We are always looking for people who think like us and if you are one of them please send your CV along with a Cover Letter. The cover letter is the most important part of your application.

It should be used to tell us how your experience, achievements, skills, knowledge & training gained in past employment & other activities that will enable you to perform at 17000 ft. Your experience and knowledge of Kargil and/or other remote areas will also be of great importance. 

Come join us! Be a part of an audacious vision to impact 500+ schools of Kargil.
