Abhijith Giridhar

Abhijith [AKA "The curd rice boy"] has spent more than 3 years working to improve education and early childhood development in India. He spends his time helping non-profits scale by leveraging technology. Currently, as a product manager at Upepo, he is building a community of playful learning enthusiasts in India. He also travels across urban and rural India to build playscapes for children. Previously, Abhijith worked towards impacting the lives of children and their communities through a focused classroom program at Teach For India.  His gaming initiative, "Games for Ed" integrated playful learning with classroom teaching.  He has led the training and community development team at a 21st-century skill-building organization for children. He also worked towards bridging the gap between technology and education as an implementation and technology associate at an Ed-tech non-profit in Bangalore.
Abhijith has interned and volunteered at GlobalGiving, Guardians Of Dreams and U&I with their fundraising and teaching verticals. Through these experiences, he has developed strong planning and implementation skills apart from a strong understanding of management, teamwork, game mechanics and development.  He likes to journal his experiences through a cartoon series and a game called the “Grand misadventures of the curd rice boy”.
