The Principal












            Three times a week, I stray from my office in Bangalore to a Kannada-medium government school to pilot an e-learning curriculum with secondary school students. We often applaud (and rightly so) the students that are eager to learn, but we seem to easily forget the people who make it possible for them to do so. I’ll talk about the pilot in more depth in a future post, but, today, I applaud this man: a principal who is willing to try something new and untested. Thank you for giving us a chance every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.​

Taylor joins AIF from the University of Oxford, where she studied inclusive and special education policy in Sub-Saharan Africa as part of her Masters degree. Her research drew upon her experiences studying abroad at the University of Cape Town as an undergraduate, where her interest in education and international development was solidified. Taylor previously served as the communications lead and project manager for Grameen Foundation's skilled volunteerism unit, Bankers without Borders. There, she was able to combine her passion for women's rights and economic empowerment, with her dedication to service, as she connected companies and individuals to technical assistance projects with microfinance institutions and NGOs around the world. Prior to leaving Washington DC, Taylor also served as a board member for the United Nations Association-National Capital Area chapter. Supported by Wadhwani Operating Foundation
