Kiran Rao


Kiran is a seasoned social professional with a total of 13 years of experience working for some of the best non-profits in the sector. Kiran had initially come in as a volunteer but soon enough, took over the herculean responsibilities of volunteer management and fundraising. Before working with Tamahar, Kiran has worked with organizations like Enable India, Dream a Dream and Aid-et-Action.

With her unique working style that mixes philanthropy with corporate competency, Kiran has taken Tamahar to another level in the 4 years she has been with us and made the organization more stable and sustainable. Today, she holds the title of CEO at Tamahar and is a part of the 2018-19 social leadership program (Aritra Program) at IIM Bangalore. In her own words, “When I started working in the NGO sector in 2005, I knew right away that I belonged here. Over the last 13 years, I have seen exponential growth in the sector in terms of the way organizations function. The “charity” attitude is diminishing and everyone is approaching their work more professionally. This will definitely lead to exciting times! It does not matter what sector you work for – as long you enjoy work and follow your passion with professionalism, you shall reach your destination.“
