    3. Update on Maneesh Pandey : Maneesh Pandey informed us that he is leaving GSK. Maneesh has been part of GSK since its inception and has been one of the pillars in GSK's success. He also has been the main point of contact for Asha for Education over the years. Maneesh is moving to one of GSK's funding partners, where he will get to work on broader areas. GSK president Sachin has stepped in to play his role till they find a suitable candidate to replace him. They have already started identifying possible candidates. Their goal is find someone in next 3 months. From our experience with other NGOs in India (like KWS), this does happen once in a while. Great talent is always in demand and can be hard to retain forever. GSK as an organization is pretty solid with experienced teachers, so I am confident that they will endure this change.
